Iron is required to produce haem and iron-sulphur (Fe-S) clusters, processes thought to occur independently. Here we show that the hypochromic anaemia in shiraz (sir) zebrafish mutants is caused by deficiency of glutaredoxin 5 (grx5), a gene required in yeast for Fe-S cluster assembly. We found that grx5 was expressed in erythroid cells of zebrafish and(More)
Vertebrate hematopoiesis is regulated by distinct cell-specific transcription factors such as GATA-1 and SCL. Mammalian p45-NFE2 was characterized for its ability to bind the hypersensitive sites of the globin locus control region. NFE2 is a member of a cap'n'collar (CNC) and basic zipper (BZIP) superfamily that regulates gene transcription. It has been(More)
