The haemopoietic system provides a well-characterized and accessible system for studying the mechanisms of developmental regulation and differentiation in higher eukaryotes. Our current understanding of the steps involved in the early stages of differentiation are poorly understood but a great deal is now known about the mechanisms by which globin expression is regulated in cells committed to the erythroid lineage. Many of the critical cis-acting sequences and some of the important trans-acting factors involved have been identified and current work is focusing on how these interact to produce high levels of tissue-specific and developmentally regulated expression of the human globin genes. © 1993 Baillière Tindall.
