Nat Neurosci 2:867-72. 1999..These results identify a general mechanism for controlling the neuronal expression pattern of a specific set of genes via the RE1 silencer element...
- Transcriptional regulation of the GluR2 gene: neural-specific expression, multiple promoters, and regulatory elementsS J Myers
Department of Pharmacology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia 30322, USA
J Neurosci 18:6723-39. 1998..These results indicate that GluR2 transcription initiates from multiple sites, is highly neuronal selective, and is regulated by three regulatory elements in the 5' proximal promoter region...
