An Update on Tc1 Insertion Site Specificity

I. Mori, G. Benian, D. Moerman, and B. Waterston

Figure 1

Since the last Newsletter, we have sequenced the insertion site of 3 
more unc-22::Tc1 alleles, and a lin-12::Tc1 allele( kindly provided by 
Iva Greenwald).  The new data confirms the original consensus we 
proposed, and further refines the specificity.  For example, note the 
alternating purine-pyrimidine tract around the insertion site.
