  1. Sequences flanking the novel transposon insertion site were cloned using extension primer tag selection linker mediated-PCR. The remobilization events are mediated by canonical transposition reactions and the transposon sequence (italics) is flanked by the characteristic TA dinucleotide target site duplication (bold). The flanking sequence (depicted in capital letters) was used to interrogate the X. tropicalis genome sequence database (Joint Genome Institute X. tropicalis genome sequence assembly v4.1; [3]) to assign the integration sites to the genomic sequence scaffolds. The genes flanking the novel integration site are listed.
  2. aThe parental integration site on scaffold 57 was mediated by a non-canonical mechanism. bTwo remobilization events showed reintegration of the excised transposon into the donor concatamer locus on scaffold 57.
