Nondeletion forms of hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin may result from regulatory disorders of globin gene expression. The defects in two such conditions were localized by demonstrating a tight genetic linkage between the disorders and polymorphic restriction endonuclease sites within the beta-like globin gene complex. In one instance, the defect probably occurred outside the region of DNA between the epsilon- and beta-globin genes.
