Multiple regulatory elements control transcription of the peripheral myelin protein zero gene.


The gene encoding protein zero (P0), the most abundant protein of peripheral nervous system myelin, is expressed uniquely in Schwann cells. Previous studies have demonstrated that much of the cell type specificity of this expression is due to transcriptional control elements in the 1.1-kilobase pair 5'-regulatory region of the gene. We have now analyzed… (More)
