- Entrez Gene: 106632268
This region represents a portion of an approximately 50 kb DNase I sensitive domain encompassing the apolipoprotein B (APOB) gene. It includes a matrix attachment region (S/MAR) that coincides with a DNase I hypersensitive site and contains over 30 copies of an approximately 15 nt AT-rich hypervariable repeat. There is also an additional DNase I hypersensitive site further upstream in the 3' UTR of APOB. The S/MAR element can confer position-independent expression to a transgene and functions as an insulator in a Drosophila model system. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]
