Tal promoter of the rat PC gene. This GC-rich region serves

Tal MedChemExpress CASIN promoter of the rat PC gene. This GC-rich region serves as a binding site for ubiquitous transcription factors Sp1/ Sp3 [24]. Mutation of this similarly located GC-box in the rat gene resulted in a reduction of the reporter gene activity to a greater extent (80 reduction) than mutation of this sequence in the human gene [24], suggesting the rat and human PC genes are regulated differently via the GC-box. A CCAAT box serves as a potential binding site for the nuclear factor Y (NF-Y) [25] and binding of this factor to this sequence is essential for transcriptional activation of TATA-less genes [26,27]. We confirmed this by performing gel shift experiments. As shown in Figure 4C, incubation of the ?8/254 probe harboring the 271/267 CCAAT box with a nuclear GHRH (1-29) supplier extract of INS-1 832/13 cells produced a predominant DNA-protein complex (lane 1). This complex was readily competed off with 10x and 50x unlabelled WT double-stranded oligonucleotide (lanes 2?), but was not competed off with an unrelated double stranded oligonucleotide sequence (lane 4). Incubation of anti-NF-Y polyclonal antibody prevented the formation of a DNA-protein binding complex (lane 5). A similar result was obtained when a nuclear extract of HEK293T cells was used in the experiment (lanes 6?0). These data indicate that NF-Y is a transcription factor that directs PC transcription via the 271/267 CCAAT box in both cell lines. Although this CCAAT box appears to be conserved in the distal promoter of both the rat and human PC genes, it serves different roles in transcriptional regulation in the two genes. In the distal promoter of rat PC gene, this CCAAT box serves a repressor element, while in the human PC gene, this sequence clearly acts asDistal Promoter of the Human Pyruvate CarboxylaseFigure 4.

The luciferase activity of each construct was normalized with the b-galactosidase activity.
