Stat3 beta inhibits gamma-globin gene expression in erythroid cells.


We demonstrated previously gamma-globin gene inhibition in K562 cells and primary erythroid progenitors treated with interleukin-6. Although several cis-acting elements have been identified in the globin promoters, the precise mechanism for cytokine-mediated globin gene regulation remains to be elucidated. In this report we demonstrate inhibitors of Stat3… (More)
