New Insights into Chronological Mobility of Retrotransposons In Vivo
Chronological expression of RTEs (IAP, ERV, L3UTR, L5UTR, LINEs, and SINE B1) in the brain, kidney, lung, liver, heart, and testis. (a) RT-qPCR analysis indicated that all RTEs were significantly upregulated in the aged mouse brain. (b) RT-qPCR analysis of RTEs showing that they were significantly upregulated in aged mouse kidneys. (c) RT-qPCR analysis showed that the RTE expression was significantly downregulated in aged mouse lungs. (d) RT-qPCR analysis of RTEs in the heart showed that only IAP was upregulated, while L3UTR, LINEs, and SINE B1 were downregulated. (e) RT-qPCR analysis of liver RTEs showed that the majority of them were significantly decreased with age. (f) RT-qPCR analysis of RTEs in the testis showed that the majority of them were significantly decreased in aged testes (24 months of age). ,, and .
