Augmentation of gamma-globin gene promoter activity by carboxylic acids and components of the human beta-globin locus control region.


Butyric acid increases fetal hemoglobin synthesis in adult animals and in erythroid cells in culture and induces the gamma-globin gene promoter in transient expression experiments in K562 cells (McDonagh KT, Nienhuis AW, Blood 78:255a, 1992 [abstr, suppl 1]). We compared the effect of butyrate and other short-chain carboxylic acids in transient expression… (More)
