Fig. 3

Structural analysis of BLOC1S2 gene transcripts in the crab-eating monkey, rhesus monkey, and African green monkey through RT-PCR experiments and sequencing of the products. The two transcript variants (V1 and V2) attributed to MIR_AluSp-derived exonization events were identified in all species. Each arrow box with a different color indicates a different SINE element. Open and closed boxes represent the untranslated region of the exon and coding sequence, respectively. Yellow, green, and blue arrow boxes represent MIR, AluSp, and AluSx3, respectively. Black and green small arrows represent the validation primer and RT-PCR primers, respectively. This figure is a structural illustration and is not drawn to scale
