Transposable Elements Are a Significant Contributor to Tandem Repeats in the Human Genome
Regions of TE that are involved in generating TRs for Alus and LTR12. (a) Representation of a selected number of fragments of AluSz that have generated TRs. Selection was made randomly to demonstrate that the repeat can occur from any region of a TE. The height of each bar is proportional to the number of repeats. Green colored regions are duplicated in 2 loci, and red colored regions are duplicated in 3 loci; (b) The number of TRs spanning each nucleotide of AluS, AluJ, and AluY; (c) The number of TRs spanning each nucleotide of LTR12.
