The type II hemopexin interleukin-6 response element predominates the transcriptional regulation of the hemopexin acute phase responsiveness.

Abstract

Hemopexin (Hx) is induced during the acute phase response (APR) by the cytokine interleukin (IL)-6. A type II IL-6 response element (RE) of the Hx gene has been characterized recently (J. Biol. Chem. (1994); 269, 12654-12661). To assess Hx gene regulation by other agents, various cytokines and growth factors were tested for their ability to induce Hx in rat… (More)
