Characterization of transgenic mice expressing EGFP under the control of the monkey 20α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase promoter

To directly assess the molecular function of the monkey 20α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (20α-HSD) promoter, we generated transgenic mice (tg) expressing enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) under control of this promoter. We demonstrated that prostaglandin F2α induced 20α-HSD promoter activity in CHO cells in a dose-dependent manner. Furthermore… CONTINUE READING
