Abstract

Functional analysis of regulatory elements in the human tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) gene showed that its promoter (-119/+169) is activated by UV irradiation in HeLa cells. We demonstrated here that the AP-2 like CCCCACCC sequence is involved in the UV-mediated activation and Sp1 binds to the sequence.
