Fig. 3

The positions of Tj1 integration clustered upstream of the TSSs of RNA pol III transcribed genes. a The region upstream of tRNA genes is diagramed showing the nucleotide positions of Tj1 integration. The TATA box is represented and the TSS is symbolized by the right-facing arrow. The star represents the sequence of the 5' end of the mature RNA species. While the linear representation is not drawn to scale the exact nucleotide positions of each integration site relative to the TSSs is shown. Some integrations mapped to the same tRNA gene but most occurred at different genes (TableĀ 1). The two integrations downstream of the TSSs of 5S rRNA genes are not shown. b Sequences of the integration sites (Brown underlined) are shown upstream of the RNA pol III transcribed genes. Also shown are the putative TATA boxes (Red), the predicted TSSs (blue) and the 5' nucleotide encoding the 5' end of the mature RNA species (Green)
