Polymorphism Description: This Alu insertion polymorphism is located on chromosome 3, approximately 200 kb upstream of WIG1, the closest identified gene.
AAAAATGG [ALU](AAAAAAAT)3(A)17 AAAAATGG shows the flanking nucleotide sequences of D1. The composition of the 3' oligo (dA) tail is denoted by the appropriate nucleotide in parenthesis followed by the length in subscripts. The nucleotide sequences comprising the flanking direct repeats of each Alu element are in bold
