- Entrez Gene: 108903149
This biological region is known to undergo Alu-repeat-mediated non-allelic homologous recombination (NAHR) with the 10p13 OPTN distal Alu-mediated recombination region, located just centromere-distal of this region, in direct orientation. NAHR events between these regions can lead to deletions of the intervening sequence, and such deletions are thought to be associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). NAHR sub-regions are found within Alu repeat elements, and the repetitive nature of these elements may play an important role in providing substrates for recombination. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016]
