High impact information on SP1

  • In supershift assay, potential regulatory elements in this region, SP1 and GATA-1, were not responsive to the inhibition of TSP-1 expression by PMA [1].
  • While fMLP exerted similar effects in both populations, dose-response curves for SP1 NKA and the NK2 receptor agonist were shifted leftwards (1, 4 and 3 orders of magnitude, respectively) in sensitized AMs [2].
  • DNA polymorphisms in two transcription control elements (SP1- and TATA-box) of porcine HSP70.2 gene detected by allele-specific PCR [3].
  • Stereospecificity of SP1 and SP2 substance P receptors [4].
  • In contrast, substitution of the same residue with D-Proline results in a potent and selective agonist for SP1 receptors [4].
