The rat growth hormone gene contains multiple thyroid response elements



The rat growth hormone gene contains multiple thyroid response elements



Journal of Biological Chemistry 264(20): 12063-12073



The thyroid hormone receptor exerts transcriptional control over a variety of genes. This report describes four sites that bind this receptor with high affinity within the 5'-flanking DNA of the rat growth hormone gene, approximately centered at -180, -160, -60 and -20 nucleotides from the transcription start site. These sites were defined by gel retardation of short synthetic oligonucleotides using native receptor purified several hundred-fold from rat liver. Binding sites were also defined by methylation interference and methidium-propyl-EDTA footprinting. Alignment of the four binding sites suggests that each contains two purine-rich regions, the more downstream of which, GGGATCGC, is highly conserved. Mutations made within each of the two upstream sites reduce receptor binding affinity. For one mutation, a partial loss of receptor binding strength correlated with a change in electrophoretic mobility, indicating that receptor binding may alter DNA conformation. Mutations at each of the four sites also reduce thyroid hormone responsiveness of the -237/+11 promoter linked to the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene coding sequences and transfected into cultured pituitary (GC) cells. These results suggest that several different receptor-binding elements interact to control thyroid hormone responsiveness of the rat growth hormone gene and reveal common sequences that may be important for receptor-DNA recognition.
