The activities of the individual hepatitis B virus (HBV) promoters and the effects of the HBV enhancer on these promoters in several human cell types have been compared by measuring the activity and RNA levels of the linked reporter function chloramphenicol acetyltransferase. The relative promoter activities in the human HepG2 (liver), HeLa, and HS27 (fibroblast) cell lines are in the order precore greater than X greater than preS2 greater than preS1; thus, the promoters of the gene producing… CONTINUE READING
