Melanotransferrin (MTf) is a tumor associated antigen found in abundance on the surface of melanoma cells. It is a transferrin-like protein found in low amount in most adult tissues and whose gene is reminiscent of house-keeping genes. With the goal of understanding the regulatory mechanisms which might explain the enhancement of expression in tumor cells,(More)
The human iron-binding protein melanotransferrin is up-regulated in most skin melanomas. With the goal to understand the mechanisms controlling the expression of the gene in these tumor cells, we previously reported the identification of an enhancer exhibiting melanoma specificity. We show here that, in the highly expressing SK-MEL-28 melanoma cell line,(More)
