Abstract

Transforming growth factors-beta are potent regulators of cellular proliferation, differentiation and morphogenesis. 2.41 kb of the 5' flanking region of the transforming growth factor-beta 5 (TGF-beta 5) gene has been isolated from a Xenopus laevis genomic library and sequenced. The transcription start site of this gene was determined by 5' RACE method. Promoter activity was demonstrated by transient transfection experiments using luciferase reporter gene constructs in XTC cells. A number of putative recognition sites for transcription factors were found in the 5' flanking region of the TGF-beta 5 gene
