The origin of a developmentally regulated Igh replicon is located near the border of regulatory domains for Igh replication and expression

Abstract : The 3′ Ig heavy chain locus (Igh) regulatory region is the most downstream known element of the murine Igh gene cluster. We report here that the nearest non-Igh genes—Crip, Crp2, and Mta1—are located ≈70 kb further downstream and are beyond the end of the domain of Igh transcriptional regulation. We have localized an origin of replication in MEL cells to a 3-kb segment located between the 3′ Igh regulatory region and Crip. Sequences downstream of this origin are replicated by forks that move in both directions. Sequences upstream of this origin (Igh-C, -D, and -J) are replicated in a single direction through a 500-kb segment in which no active bidirectional origins can be detected. We propose that this origin may lie at or near the end of the Igh regulation domain.
