p300/Cyclic AMP-responsive element binding-binding protein mediates transcriptional coactivation by the CD28 T cell costimulatory receptor.

During Ag stimulation of T cells, the recognition of B7 molecules by the CD28 costimulatory receptor increases the level of c-Fos, a component of the AP-1 transactivator known to bind the 5' Il2 gene enhancer. In this study, we show that the costimulation of Fos transcription by CD28 is associated with increased binding of p300/CREB-binding protein (CBP… (More)
