Alu interspersed elements are inserted into the genome by a retroposition process that occurs via dimeric Alu RNA and causes genetic disorders in humans. Alu RNA is labile and can be diverted to a stable left monomer transcript known as small cytoplasmic Alu (scAlu) RNA by RNA 3' processing, although the relationship between Alu RNA stability, scAlu RNA production, and retroposition has been unknown. In vivo, Alu and scAlu transcripts interact with the Alu RNA-binding subunit of signal… CONTINUE READING
