Expression of mobile elements in the CbfA underexpressing mutant JH.D. Expression data are derived from a previous RNA-seq analysis [28]. RPKM values (reads per kb of mRNA and standardized to 1 million reads) were obtained for the indicated mobile elements and calculated as ratio of JH.D versus AX2 and are shown as “fold change” of expression, meaning that values >1 represent overexpression of genes in JH.D. Values are means from three independent cultures ± SD. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, relative to control AX2 cells (Student’s t-test). Black bars indicate non-LTR retrotransposons, grey bars indicate LTR retrotransposons (including the tyrosine recombinase retrotransposon DIRS-1), and white bars indicate putative DNA transposons
