Vimentin is an intermediate filament protein normally expressed in cells of mesenchymal origin. The promoter of the human vimentin gene was previously reported to contain two positive-acting regions, separated by a negative region (Rittling, S.R., Baserga, R., 1987. Functional analysis and growth factor regulation of the human vimentin promoter. Mol. Cell. Biol. 7, 3908-3915). Here, detailed studies reveal two additional regulatory elements, a new positive transcriptional element located… CONTINUE READING
