How can you use “alu” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • This quality is consistent with previous computational [ 6] and biochemical [ 12, 34] observations of A-rich target sequences of L1s and Alu sequences.

  • 3% of the time and into SINE/ Alu just 3% of the time, most probably because Alu sequences have a relatively high GC content (56%).

  • Recent evidence suggests that the explosion of segmental duplications in recent primate evolution has been caused in part by the rapid proliferation of Alu elements about 40 MYA.

  • Not only does L1 sequence itself contribute at least 462 megabases (Mb) to our genome (17% of the total length) [ 1 ] , but copies of the Alu and SVA transposable elements and processed pseudogenes are also believed to have inserted into the genome by borrowing the EN and RT proteins encoded by L1 [ 13 20 21 24 25 26 27 ] . In addition to self-mobilization and mobilization of other transposable elements, L1s can also move unique flanking DNA sequence to another locus in the genome in a process known as 3' transduction.

  • LINE1 elements again differed from other features, showing a negative correlation with exons, CpG islands, GC content and Alu repeats.
