We have shown previously that a GC-rich element (GGGGCGGGGTGGGGGG) conferring epidermal growth factor (EGF) responsiveness to the human gastrin promoter binds Sp1 and additional undefined complexes. A rat GH4 cell line expression library was screened by using a multimer of the gastrin EGF response element, and three overlapping cDNA clones were identified.(More)
Gastrin gene expression is regulated by developmental cues, pH, and inflammation. These processes are mediated by various extracellular ligands, e.g., growth factors, cytokines, and neuropeptides that also stimulate c-fos gene expression. Therefore, to determine whether Fos is required for stimulation of the gastrin promoter, a c-fos sense expression vector(More)
The human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum possesses sophisticated systems of protein secretion to modulate host cell invasion and remodeling. In the present study, we provide insights into the function of the AP-1 complex in P. falciparum. We utilized GFP fusion constructs for live cell imaging, as well as fixed parasites in immunofluorescence(More)
