A gene deletion ending within a complex array of repeated sequences 3' to the human beta-globin gene cluster.


A DNA fragment containing the deletion junction region from an Indian individual with a type of hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin has been cloned. Using a probe isolated from this deletion-spanning clone, we located the 3' breakpoint of the deletion in normal DNA to a region 30 kilobase pairs (kb) downstream of the beta-globin gene. The deletion… (More)
