Evolution of Alu repeats surrounding the human ferredoxin gene.


Ferredoxin is an iron-sulfur protein that serves as an electron carrier for the mitochondrial oxidation/reduction system. During the characterization of the human ferredoxin gene, we have identified three Alu sequences surrounding it. When these Alu sequences were compared with others, all three of them are more related to the consensus Alu than the 7SL… (More)
