The number of Alu transcripts that accumulate in HeLa and other human cells is normally very low; however, infection with adenovirus type 5 increases the expression of Alu elements dramatically, indicating that the potential for polymerase III (pol III)-dependent Alu transcription in vivo is far greater than generally observed (B. Panning and J.R. Smiley… CONTINUE READING
