Alu genes are GC-rich, highly repetitive genetic elements whose functions remain unknown. Members of this family are readily transcribed in vitro by RNA polymerase III, but RNA corresponding to only a small sub-set of Alu elements has been found in vivo. Based on the hypothesis that methylation of Alu elements affects their transcription, the(More)
As a way to spatially control the expression of genes within cells, RNA localization is being recognized as an important process by which proteins are restricted to specific subcellular domains, which occurs in more diverse types of tissue than previously considered. Although many localized RNAs have been identified, information on cis-acting elements of(More)
