Tissue- and stratum-specific expression of the human involucrin promoter in transgenic mice.


Involucrin is a marker of keratinocyte terminal differentiation and is expressed only in the suprabasal layers of stratified squamous epithelium. In a previous study with various cell types in culture, we noted that expression of the putative human involucrin promoter was keratinocyte specific. To determine if this promoter is sufficient to direct… (More)
