NF[kappa]B, like AP-1 (13), is required for tumor promoter-induced transformation of JB6 cells (14,15).
Dose-response relationships of transformation, AP-1, SRE, and NF[kappa]B activation by TPA, EGF, or TNF[alpha] revealed activation levels above which there was risk of neoplastic transformation.
AP-1 or NF[kappa]B luciferase reporter plasmids consisting of luciferase reporter gene driven by the promoter harboring the appropriate element were described previously (13,14).
Two independent AP-1 reporter clones (A3 and A9) also showed concentration-dependent activation of AP-1-dependent transcription in response to TPA or EGF treatment (Figure 3A, B).
Hunt speculates that many proteins like AP-1 may help reset the clock.
Ordinarily, regulation of AP-1 in normal cells is tightly controlled.
