Regulation of human prostate-specific antigen gene expression in transgenic mice: evidence for an enhancer between the PSA and human glandular kallikrein-1 genes.

The human prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and glandular kallikrein-1 (hGK-1, also known as hK2) genes are tandemly located on chromosome 19, separated by a 12-kb intergenic region. The coordinate regulation of these two genes suggests the presence of common regulatory elements responsible for tissue specificity and/or levels of expression within this region… CONTINUE READING
