Abstract

Chromatin in the 5' flanking region of the transcriptionally active chicken adult β (β(A) globin genes is hypersensitive to nuclease digestion. When plasmids carrying this gene are combined with histones in the presence of extracts from 9-day-old chicken erythrocyte nuclei, the resultant complex displays hypersensitive behavior in the same region. No such behavior is observed with extracts from cells in which the β(A)-globin gene is not expressed. Partially purified preparations of the factor conferring hypersensitivity bind preferentially to DNA fragments containing the hypersensitive region.
