The continuous DNA sequence of a 16.5-kilobase pair region encompassing the linked delta beta-globin gene cluster in humans is presented with a detailed restriction endonuclease map. There are 38 differences (0.5%) in comparison with published sequence data, corrected for errors in sequencing, resulting in polymorphic rates of 0.2% in exons and 0.76% in 5'-gene flanking regions. Fifteen changes result in the generation or elimination of restriction sites which may be useful in linkage disequilibrium studies. Two pairs of inverted Alu repeats, a pyrimidine-rich region 5' to delta, and (TG)n, (Pu/Py)n, and (ATTTT)n tracts 5' to beta are described. Dinucleotide frequencies and deviation from expected values approximated those found in total human genomic DNA. Regions of less than 50% A + T content were found associated with Alu sequences, a 150-base pair region immediately 5' to the beta gene, exon regions from both genes, and an area 3' to the beta gene. These regions also contained significantly lower than expected CpG levels compared to other regions, suggesting a possible relationship between DNA organizational patterns and functionally important regions. In addition, strand asymmetries in base composition in this region differ from those associated with the fetal globin genes.
