I'd appreciate it if you could post that breast cancer reference if you find
You might try:
Science, 216:1065 -review
For transcription regulation related work:
FEB 251:79 -site specific protein interaction
MCB 9:355 -negative txn reg
NAR 14:6145 -alu silent in Hela cells
You might check into the rat ID sequence story. Be warned: initial reports
of tissue specific transcriptional regulation activity turned out to be
artifactual. Sorry, all I have here at the moment is one of the initial
papers. It shouldn't be hard for you to track down.
There are a number of reports of recombination taking place between alu

Perhaps this is related to your oncogenesis recollection:
