12-O-Tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate down-regulates the Huntingtin promoter at Spl sites
We have studied the effects of the phorbol ester, 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) on Huntington's disease (HD) gene transcription in neuronal and non-neuronal cell lines, to investigate pathways regulating HD gene expression. TPA reduced transcription from the HD gene promoter in SKN-SH (neuroblastoma) and HeLa cells but not in JEG3 (choriocarcinoma) cells. In SK-N-SH cells, the responsible cis-acting promoter sequences comprise the tandemly duplicated Spl sites in the region from -213 to -174, relative to the translation start site. The TPA-down-regulating region in HeLa cells was mapped to the sequence from -141 to -126. In conclusion, this demonstrates that HD gene transcription can be down-regulated in vitro in a cell-specific manner.

Abstract

We have studied the effects of the phorbol ester, 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) on Huntington's disease (HD) gene transcription in neuronal and non-neuronal cell lines, to investigate pathways regulating HD gene expression. TPA reduced transcription from the HD gene promoter in SKN-SH (neuroblastoma) and HeLa cells but not in JEG3 (choriocarcinoma) cells. In SK-N-SH cells, the responsible cis-acting promoter sequences comprise the tandemly duplicated Spl sites in the region from -213 to -174, relative to the translation start site. The TPA-down-regulating region in HeLa cells was mapped to the sequence from -141 to -126. In conclusion, this demonstrates that HD gene transcription can be down-regulated in vitro in a cell-specific manner.
