Identification of a tumor necrosis factor-responsive element in the tumor necrosis factor alpha gene.


The regulation by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF) of its own promoter has been investigated by transient transfection and nuclear protein binding assays. In human K652 erythroleukemia cells TNF produced an 8-10-fold activation of the human TNF promoter linked to the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene. The TNF-responsive element was localized to the… (More)
