"The Caenorhabditis globin gene family reveals extensive nematode-specific radiation a . . ." by David Hoogewijs, Sasha De...
Bayesian phylogenetic analysis resolves all nematode globins into two distinct globin classes. Analysis of the globin intron- ... The resulting globin genes were subject to processes of subfunctionalization and diversification leading to cell-specific ... A duplication of an ancestral globin gene occurred before the divergence of the Platyhelminthes and the Nematoda and one of the ... We also show that the Caenorhabditis globin genes are expressed in distinct, mostly non-overlapping, sets of cells and that ...https://digitalcommons.wayne.edu/biomedcentral/138/
"Induction of endogenous γ-globin gene expression with decoy oligonucleotide targeting . . ." by Xiaoxin S. Xu, Xin Hong et al.
The human γ-globin genes (both Aγ and Gγ-globin genes) carry three Oct-1 transcription factor consensus sequences within their ... Increasing the expression of the γ-globin gene has great benefits in reducing complications associated with these diseases. The ... We have studied the possibility of inducing γ-globin gene expression using decoy oligonucleotides that target the Oct-1 ... significant increases in the level of the γ-globin mRNA were observed. The results of our western blots further demonstrated ...https://digitalcommons.wayne.edu/biomedcentral/127/
