Control of thyroglobulin gene transcription by TSH and cAMP

, : Control of thyroglobulin gene transcription by TSH and cAMP. Hormone and Metabolic Research. Supplement Series 17: 70-73

The availability of the sequence of the Tg promoter from cattle, rats and humans enabled a comparison to be made from which a general picture of the organisation of the Tg promoter region emerged. Chromatin structure studies identified tissue-specific modifications at the level of DNA-protein interactions. A DNA element was shown to be involved in transcription control by cAMP.

The expression of the genes coding for thyroglobulin (TG), and thyroperoxidase (TPO), are regulated by TSH. These effects are mediated by cAMP as they are reproduced by forskolin. In vitro run-on transcription assays performed on nuclei isolated f...

The bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a biological activator that induces expression of multiple genes in several cell types. LPS has been proposed as an etiopathogenic agent in autoimmune diseases. However, whether LPS affects the expression...
