We have investigated the regulation of neurofilament gene expression during retinoic acid (RA)-induced neural differentiation of P19 embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells. Western blot analysis demonstrated that P19 EC cells contain significant levels of NF-L protein in the insoluble fraction but undetectable levels of NF-M and NF-H protein in either the insoluble(More)
We have previously described ECIF-1, a DNA-binding factor present in nuclear extracts of murine embryonal carcinoma cells which specifically recognizes a region within the human beta-interferon promoter. We show that the promoter region located between -112 and -93 is sufficient for this binding activity, which is not due to binding of interferon-regulatory(More)
Micrococcal nuclease was used to eliminate endogenous protein synthesis in extracts prepared from L cells. The nuclease can be inhibited subsequently with 2'-deoxythymidine-3', 5'-diphosphate. Nuclease-treated extracts primed with exogenous reovirus mRNA, synthesized full length polypeptides with linear kinetics for almost two hours leading to stimulation(More)
The human interferon fi (IFN-$) regulatory element consists of multiple enhanson domains which are targets for transcription factors involved in inducible expression of the promoter. To further characterize the protein-DNA interactions mediating IFN-$ induction, positive regulatory domain (PRD) II binding proteins were purified from phorbol ester induced(More)
