Distribution of potential MAR/SAR sites predicted in the ABL gene. The ABL genomic map from nucleotide positions 601-174330 is illustrated above [Ensembl:ENSG00000097007]. The locations of exons 1 to 11 are shown. Green boxes represent the three previously reported patient breakpoints cluster regions which are designated as BCRA, BCRB and BCRC. Yellow box shows the previously biochemically extracted MAR/SAR which is designated as SAR1 [77]. Yellow arrows represent the potential MAR/SARs predicted by MRS. Clusters of more than one MRS within close proximity are regarded as a single potential MAR/SAR site. For instance, there were two MRSs predicted in BCRB, however, they were regarded as a single potential MAR/SAR site (MAR/SAR 3) because they were found in close proximity. There was one MAR/SAR site (MAR/SAR 9) predicted in the experimentally isolated SAR1
