Ets-1 activates the DRA promoter in B cells.

The X box in promoters of class II major histocompatibility complex genes plays a crucial role in the B-cell-specific and gamma interferon-inducible expression of these genes. The sequence TTCC is located in the pyrimidine tract which extends 5' to and partially overlaps the X box of the DRA promoter. This sequence resembles the core binding site for the… CONTINUE READING
