Figure 4

Distribution of Alu sequences within the 10 kb flanking 5' ends of genes. The 20 kb window for all genes annotated in the human genome were subdivided in 500 bp intervals. The number of Alu sequences and Alu sequences with a DR2 element were counted for each interval. Grey bars represent the ratio of the number Alu repeats within a given interval divided by the total number of Alu repeats within 10 kb of a gene, black bars represent the number DR2-containing Alu repeats within a given interval divided by the total number of Alu repeats within 10 kb of a gene, whereas black squares indicate the number Alu motifs with a DR2 element within a given interval divided by the total number of DR2-containing Alu repeats within 10 kb of a gene.
