(7) The rIL-2 infusion caused a reversible fall in ures and a non-reversible rise in creatinine.
(8) The experimental evidence suggests that either the repression associated with the URE sequence is mediated by a direct, one-to-one interaction between the proteins recognizing the URE and GCRE, or alternatively, that there is a direct interaction between the activator and repressor for a general transcription factor.
(9) Furthermore, repression is seen when the URE is separated from the UAS by up to 214 bp.
(10) This suggests that either a different accessory element and cognate protein interacts with the horse URE to provide placenta-specific expression or that a completely different set of regulatory elements is required for placenta-specific expression in horses.
