In these studies, we show that NF-kappa B induces transcription from the human pro-IL-1 beta (IL-1 beta) gene. A recombinant plasmid pIL-1(-4000)-CAT, containing 4 kb of the IL-1 beta gene upstream regulatory sequence was transactivated by the p65 subunit of NF-kappa B or by treatment of the cells with a combination of NF-kappa B inducers including LPS,(More)
Progression through the somatic cell cycle requires the temporal regulation of cyclin gene expression and cyclin protein turnover. One of the best-characterized examples of this regulation is seen for the B-type cyclins. These cyclins and their catalytic component, cdc2, have been shown to mediate both the entry into and maintenance of mitosis. The cyclin(More)
A loxP-transposon retrofitting strategy for generating large nested deletions from one end of the insert DNA in bacterial artificial chromosomes and P1 artificial chromosomes was described recently [Chatterjee, P. K. & Coren, J. S. (1997) Nucleic Acids Res. 25, 2205-2212]. In this report, we combine this procedure with direct sequencing of nested-deletion(More)
An intact cAMP response element (CRE) in the upstream regulatory sequence of IL-1 beta (-2755/-2762) has been shown to be essential for maintaining full IL-1 beta inducibility following treatment with LPS, PMA, or TNF-alpha. In the present study, using the recombinant plasmid pIL-1(4.0 kb)-chloramphenicol acetyltransferase, containing 4.0 kb of the IL-1(More)
