Three Alu sequences have been identified surrounding the human ferredoxin-encoding genes. Among them, one is located about 1000 bp upstream from the active gene, whereas two others flank the ferredoxin pseudogene, ΨVFDX3. All these Alu sequences contain poly(A) tails and are flanked by direct repeats, indicating that they arose by RNA-mediated transposition events.
