AluJb (DF0000007)

AluJb subfamily


Alu elements derive from a pair of internally-deleted 7SL RNA monomers that are joined by an A-rich linker. This element is described in "Origin and evolution of Alu repetitive elements", by Jurka J., in Molecular Biology Intelligence Unit: The impact of short interspersed elements (SINEs) on the host genome (ed. Richard J. Maraia), R.G.Landes Company, Austin, pp.25-41 (1995).
