BACKGROUND Recently, we have shown that peroxisomal protein expression was induced upon retinoic acid treatment in mouse embryonic stem cells during the process of neurogenesis. Thus, characterization of the respective promoter could elucidate the molecular aspects of transcriptional regulation of this gene. METHODS Using the conventional software(More)
FNDC5 (also termed PEP) gene encodes a type I membrane protein which is cleaved and secreted as Irisin hormone. We have identified mouse putative core promoter of FNDC5 and characterized its activity. FNDC5 is located within mouse chromosome 4, spans about 7,534 bp, and consists of 6 exons. The mouse FNDC5 promoter is TATA-less and lacks a consensus(More)
