Activity of the A3 adenosine receptor gene promoter in transgenic mice: characterization of previously unidentified sites of expression.


Sites of A3 adenosine receptor gene expression have not been fully explored nor has this gene's promoter activity been confirmed in vivo. Transgenic mice were generated in which 2.3 kb upstream of the transcriptional start site of the mouse A3 adenosine receptor was coupled to a beta-galactosidase reporter gene. Selective transgene expression was detected… (More)
