Roles of IFN consensus sequence binding protein and PU.1 in regulating IL-18 gene expression.


IL-18 is expressed from a variety of cell types. Two promoters located upstream of exon 1 (5'-flanking region) and upstream of exon 2 (intron 1) regulate its expression. Both promoter regions were cloned into pCAT-Basic plasmid to yield p1-2686 for the 5'-flanking promoter and p2-2.3 for the intron 1 promoter. Both promoters showed basal constitutive… (More)
