Notes: The function of the regulatory element, 5.5URR, upstream of signal transducer and activator of transcription 1 (STAT1) is investigated. The Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay showed a significant increase in transcription in the presence of the 5.5URR upon interferon treatment. The HaloCHIP™ System showed a physical interaction between the 5.5URR element and the STAT1 promoter, which was stimulated by interferon treatment. Together, the 5.5URR element may serve in maintaining interferon signaling in relation to STAT1. (5097)
