The role of upstream stimulatory factor 1 in the transcriptional regulation of the human TBX21 promoter mediated by the T-1514C polymorphism associated with systemic lupus erythematosus


T-bet is a key regulator for the lineage commitment in CD4+ T helper (Th) 1 cells by activating the hallmark production of interferon-γ. Previously, two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the TBX21 promoter, T-1993C and T-1514C, have been shown by statistic studies to associate with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The effect of −1993 SNP on the… (More)
