The Proximal Promoter Region of the Gene Encoding Human 17β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 1 Contains GATA, AP-2, and Sp1 Response Elements: Analysis of Promoter Function in Choriocarcinoma Cells.

Abstract

The 59-flanking region from 278 to 19 in the HSD17B1 gene serves as a promoter, and an HSD17B1 silencer element is located in position 2113 to 278. In the present studies, we have characterized three regulatory elements in the proximal 59-flanking regions of the gene, using electrophoretic mobility shift assays and reporter gene analysis. First, nuclear… (More)
