Epithelium-specific Ets transcription factor 1 (ESE-1) is a member of the E26 transformation-specific family of transcription factors that has an epithelial-restricted constitutive expression but is induced by inflammatory stimuli in non-epithelial cells. Here we report that ESE-1 is constitutively expressed
