FOXA transcription factors determine the amplitude of glucocorticoid induction of tyrosine aminotransferase in mice.


PMID 18683506

Abstract

o-Aminoazotoluene was more potent than 3'-methyl-4-dimethylaminoazobenzene in modulating glucocorticoid induction of tyrosine aminotransferase and DNA-binding activity of FOXA (HNF3) in 12-day-old ICR mice. In adult animals, induction of tyrosine aminotransferase and FOXA activity were modulated by o-aminoazotoluene, while 3'-methyl-4-dimethylaminoazobenzene was ineffective. Our results suggest that FOXA proteins determine glucocorticoid induction of tyrosine aminotransferase in mice (similarly to rats).
