The sequence-specific DNA-binding protein factor F6, which binds upstream of the cluster of the chicken α-globin genes, has previously been found to interact with a DNA fragment containing a replication origin and a nuclear matrix binding site. This protein has been partially characterized. Based on its molecular weight and binding affinity, F6 belongs to a family of GATA proteins, the chicken equivalent of transcription factor NFE-1. An oligonucleotide including the binding site for F6… CONTINUE READING
