Identification of an octamer-binding site controlling the activity of the small breast epithelial mucin gene promoter.

Abstract

e human small breast epithelial mucin (SBEM) gene has been identified as being preferentially expressed in mammary epithelial cells and over-expressed in breast tumors. In this report, we have characterized the promoter of SBEM gene in order to identify sequences responsible for this strong mammary expression. A series of SBEM promoter/luciferase constructs… (More)
