Figure 2

Results of the TinT analysis for different Alu dimers in primates. The lower part of each panel represents the data matrix derived from the RepeatMasker outfile. Subtypes listed across the top represent host elements; those listed along the left side are the inserted elements. The copy numbers of Alu elements are indicated in the last column and the sums of nested insertions for both hosts and inserted elements are shown across the bottom and to the right, respectively. The upper parts of each panel present a graphical display of the chronological activities of the elements sorted by the peak of each activity. The center of each oval represents the maximum of each activity period; the ends of each oval encompass 75%, the vertical lines 95%, and the ends of each line 99% of the probable activity period range. Elements within grey boxes are taxon-specific elements. A relative time scale is shown below. TinT profiles for (A) Homo sapiens, (B) Macaca mulatta, (C) Callithrix jacchus, (D) Tarsius syrichta, and (E) Microcebus murinus.
