Identification of a recently evolved goat embryonic beta-globin pseudogene which retains transcriptional activity in vitro.

A clone containing the entire goat epsilon V beta-globin gene, which lies downstream from the two tandemly duplicated four-gene sets containing the beta C and beta A genes in the linkage group 5'-epsilon I-epsilon II-psi beta X-beta C-epsilon III-epsilon IV-psi beta Z-beta A-epsilon V-3', was isolated, and the sequence of the gene was determined. epsilon V… CONTINUE READING
