Default Alu sequences



Hi
what is the role of Alu sequence in the human genome, as it is said that there are about 100,000 Alu repeats are there in the human genome and their size is about 200-300bp.

regards
aftab

The role of Alu sequences.. hmmm that is a great question... not much that I know... I guess it is speculation so far.. fossil DNA? - from old viruses?

Default Re: Alu sequences

Alu sequence (a million copies which are found in human genome)appear to preferentially integrate into sequence corresponding to another class of transposon called Line.
Alu sequences are only seen in higher primates and as they have mutated over time, some may have acquired an ability to bind to hormones.As a result some of these elements may now play a role in modulating the expression of nearly genes.
