The neuropoietic cytokines ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) regulate VIP gene expression through a cytokine response element (CyRE) which interacts with members of the STAT transcription factor family. The CyRE STAT site is, however, insufficient to mediate full transcriptional activation by CNTF/LIF, suggesting that other sequences and nuclear proteins are also important. As C/EBP proteins participate in the transcriptional effects of the related cytokine… CONTINUE READING
