The evolutionary history of the rabbit globin pseudogene psi beta 2 was studied by completing its nucleotide sequence and aligning the sequence with that of the rabbit adult globin gene beta 1 and the human minor adult globin gene delta. The 5' flanking region and exon 1 of psi beta 2 were most similar to rabbit beta 1, but the large intervening sequence and the 3' untranslated region were most similar to human delta. Intron 1 and exon 2 were equally similar to both delta and beta 1. This… CONTINUE READING
