We present the results of a detailed comparison of the primary structure of human beta-like globin genes and their flanking sequences. Among the sequences located 5' to these genes are two highly conserved regions which include the sequences ATA and CCAAT located 31 +/- 1 and 77 +/- 10 bp, respectively, 5' to the mRNA capping site. Similar sequences are found in the corresponding locations in most other eucaryotic structural genes. Calculation of the divergence times of individual beta-like g...Expand abstract
