The two promoters of the mouse alpha-amylase gene Amy-1a are differentially activated during parotid gland differentiation.

Abstract

Mouse parotid acinar cells differentiate and proliferate mainly after birth. During the first 3 weeks of age, alpha-amylase mRNA, one of the major gene products of the adult tissue, increases from barely detectable to adult levels (10(4) copies/cell). Run-on transcription experiments show that this increase is transcriptionally regulated. Northern blot… (More)
