GATA-2 and HNF-3beta regulate the human alcohol dehydrogenase 1A (ADH1A) gene.

In this paper, we have identified several distal cis-acting elements that contribute to the regulation and tissue- specificity of ADH1A, which encodes an alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) that metabolizes ethanol. A negative element from bp -1873 to -1558, relative to the translational start site, decreased transcriptional activity to 52% in H4IIE-C3 cells and 70… CONTINUE READING
