Computer Search for Promoter-Like Sequences for RNA-Polymerase II and Potential Peptides Among Alu-Repeats




    CAAC and TATA boxes typical on many eukaryotic RNA-polymerase II promoters are observed in the first monomer of Alu-repeats. The computer analysis has shown that these boxes are homological to corespondent functional sites. Open reading frames coding short peptides are found in the second monomer of Alu-repeats. Two major types of peptides are distinguished among these potential peptides. They contain up to 75 % of all the peptides and are called EAE and GG-peptides, respectively.
