A mouse alpha-globin-related pseudogene lacking intervening sequences.

Abstract

A mouse alpha-globin-related pseudogene (psi alpha 30.5) completely lacks intervening sequences, and could not code for a functional globin poypeptide because of frameshifts. The widespread occurrence of globin pseudogenes in other species suggests that they are not 'dead' genes but may be important in controlling globin expression.
