Renin plays a crucial role in the control of various physiological processes such as blood pressure and body fluid homeostasis. Here, we show that a splice variant of the Wilms' tumor protein lacking three amino acids WT1(-KTS) suppresses renin gene transcription. Using bioinformatics tools, we initially predicted that a WT1-binding site exists in a(More)
Elucidating the mechanisms of the human transcriptional regulatory network is a major challenge of the post-genomic era. One important aspect is the identification and functional analysis of regulatory elements in non-coding DNA. Genomic sequence comparisons between related species can guide the discovery of cis-regulatory sequences. Using this technique,(More)
