Analysis of lineage-specific Alu subfamilies in the genome of the olive baboon, Papio anubis

Cody Steely, Jasmine Baker, Jerilyn Walker, Charles Loupe & Mark Batzer
Abstract Background Alu elements are primate-specific retroposons that mobilize using the enzymatic machinery of L1Â s. The recently completed baboon genome project found that the mobilization rate of Alu elements is higher than in the genome of any other primate studied thus far. However, the Alu subfamily structure present in and specific to baboons had not been examined yet. Results Here we report 129 Alu subfamilies that are propagating in the genome of the olive...
