Glucose-induced binding of the polypyrimidine tract-binding protein (PTB) to the 3′-untranslated region of the insulin mRNA (ins-PRS) is inhibited by rapamycin

Abstract

Despite considerable knowledge on the regulation of insulin gene transcription, little is known about the post-transcriptional control mechanisms of this gene. We have recently reported glucose- and hypoxia-regulated binding of the polypyrimidine tract-binding protein (PTB) to the pyrimidine-rich sequence of the 3′-untranslated insulin mRNA (ins-PRS), an… (More)
