A Gypsy element contributes to the nuclear retention and transcriptional regulation of the resident lncRNA in locusts

Xia Zhang, Ya′Nan Zhu, Bing Chen & Le Kang
The majority of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) contain transposable elements (TEs). PAHAL, a nuclear-retained lncRNA that is inserted by a Gypsy retrotransposon, has been shown to be a vital regulator of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) gene expression that controls dopamine biosynthesis and behavioural aggregation in the migratory locust. However, the role of the Gypsy retrotransposon in the transcriptional regulation of PAHAL remains unknown. Here, we identified a Gypsy retrotransposon (named Gypsy element) as an inverted long...
