Keiko Akagi, Jingfeng Li and David E. Symer How do mammalian transposons induce genetic variation? A conceptual framework BioEssays 35
Wide-ranging genetic variation caused by mammalian transposable elements. Schematics depict a mobile genetic element polymorphism in a genomic target site (top, YFG, your favorite gene); somatic mobilization in normal development or during cancer formation (middle, dark circles); and variable impacts of germline vs. somatic insertions accumulated over evolutionary time (bottom).
