Keratinocyte responsive element 3: analysis of a keratinocyte-specific regulatory sequence in the 230-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen gene promoter.

Abstract

The 230-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen gene is expressed primarily, if not exclusively, in basal keratinocytes of the epidermis. Keratinocyte responsive element 3, a cis-element at position -216 to -197 of the human 230-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen gene promoter, confers tissue-specific expression to this gene (Tamai et al: J Biol Chem 270:7609-7614, 1995… (More)
