Some sequences in the genome exist in multiple genes. One example is the
B1 element in the mice genome, which is either located in the genes
transcribed by RNA pol II or transcribed by RNA pl III.
There is a B1 element sequence in p53 gene although the function of this
multiple repreat is not clear. It is possiblely involved in the cell
differentiation and development.
