In addition to a CCAAT box, regulatory elements have been identified in the 5'-flanking region of the IL-8 gene for multiple transcription factors, including glucocorticoid receptor, hepatocyte nuclear factor-1, interferon regulatory factor-1, activator protein-1 (AP-1), CCAAT/enhancer binding protein [beta] (C/EBP[beta]), and nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-[kappa]B) (Jung et al.
At the molecular level, treatment of 3T3-L1 cells with SAW or SAA inhibited the expression of the key adipocyte differentiation regulator CCAAT enhancer binding protein [bata](C/EBP[beta]), as well as peroxisome proliferator activated receptor [garmma], adipocyte protein-2, lipoprotein lipase and glucose transporter 4.
Its 5' -flanking region contains the usual CCAAT and TATA boxlike structures and a number of potential binding sites for several inducible transcription factors including nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB), activator protein-1 (AP-1), and CAAT/enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP) (Luster 1998; Roebuck 1999; Wu et al.
