Alu repeats are short interspersed elements (SINEs) of dimeric structure whose transposition sometimes leads to heritable disorders in humans. Human cells contain a poly(A)- small cytoplasmic transcript of -120 nucleotides (nt) homologous to the left Alu monomer. Although its monomeric size indicates that small cytoplasmic Alu (scAlu) RNA is not an intermediary of human Alu transpositions, a less abundant poly(A)-containing Alu transcript of dimeric size and specificity expected of a… CONTINUE READING
