High impact information on AP-1gamma

  • Proteins that acted through a cooperative interaction between an AP-1 and an unrecognized cAMP response element (CRE)-like site were also identified [1].
  • The DNA-binding domain is more closely related to mammalian CREB than to the AP-1 factors in both sequence homology and specificity of cAMP-responsive element binding [2].
  • Additionally we have identified a potential cAMP response element, AP-1 and E box sites, and two elements demonstrated in other genes to confer placenta-specific expression [3].
  • Our studies indicate that the Drosophila ras2 promoter region shares with the human c-Ha-ras1 promoter a CACCC box and an AP-1-like sequence [4].
  • The presence of overlapping AP-1 and antioxidant responsive-like sequences that appear functional in transfected vertebrate cells suggest that the recruitment of glutathione S-transferase to S-crystallins involved response to oxidative stress [5].

Biological context of AP-1gamma

  • These cytosolic effectors in turn lead to altered programs of gene expression by activating, among others, AP-1 and serum response factor transcription factors [6].
