Secondary structure and intron-promoter homology in globin-switching.

An extensive stem-loop structure was found in the A gamma-globin promoter region. Intron transcripts from epsilon-globin, A gamma-globin, delta-globin, and beta-globin were complementary to the loop sequence. A model for globin-switching based upon changes in DNA secondary structure and intron transcript pairing was proposed. Pairing of the epsilon intron transcript with the anti-sense strand was postulated to result in up-regulation whereas pairing of the sense strand with the intron transcripts from A gamma-globin, delta-globin, and beta-globin was postulated to result in down-regulation. The model is consistent with known hemoglobin disorders and can be extended to account for any series of genes that are turned on and off as development proceeds.[1]
