Schematic of relative endogenous L1 expression levels and engineered retrotransposition frequencies in human ESCs and adult stem cells derived from mesoderm and ectoderm. Relative L1 mRNA and L1 ORF1p expression levels, and relative engineered L1 retrotransposition frequencies supported by the respective cell type are illustrated: ++++, very high; +++, high; ++, moderate; +/−, barely detectable and therefore very low.
