Activation of the mouse metallothionein-I promoter in transiently transfected avian cells.


The induction of the mouse metallothionein-I (MT-I) transcriptional regulatory region by heavy metals in cultured avian cells was studied in a transient-expression assay system for a growth hormone. The MT-I promoter was shown to be inducible by 10 microM to 90 microM ZnCl2 in a dose-dependent manner.
