15] Genetical variation 31 Doolittle & Sapienza 1980). It is proposed that such parasitic DNA tends to multiply, not because of any benefit it confers on its host, but simply as a result of the suitable environment the host cells provide. The Alu sequence is a strong candidate for selfish DNA. It seems likely that the 300000 or so copies of Alu arose and spread in parasitic fashion from a single primordial Alu sequence. Perhaps all the dispersed repetitious DNA arose in similar manner. The highly repeated satellite DNA sequences also appear to have the property of multiplication to form tandem arrays, but they lack the tell-tale signs of transposition such as direct flanking repeats.
