SINE sequences in the genomes of plant

Mobile genetic elements have been identified in all studied so far animal species , fungi , and Protozoa . They form a significant component of plant genomes . They are subject to intensive processes of amplification , and then are inserted in new places. Mobile devices are commonly divided into two large classes . The first is the retrotransposons , created with the participation of RNA and reverse transcriptase ; This second class of DNA transposons , in which the process of creating new copies and their movement is mediated by DNA and transposase .
