The role of homeobox protein distal-less 3 and its interaction with ETS2 in regulating bovine interferon-tau gene expression-synergistic transcriptional activation with ETS2.


Distal-less 3 (DLX3), a homeodomain transcription factor required for placental development in the mouse, modestly transactivates hCG-alpha subunit gene (hCGA) expression in human choriocarcinoma cells. Because hCG and interferon-tau (IFNT) are expressed in trophectoderm of primates and ruminants, respectively, we have tested the hypothesis that DLX3… (More)
