CXCR4 promoter in pDRIVE expression plasmid

CXCR4 is the receptor for the chemokine SDF1 and a coreceptor for HIV-1 entry. The expression of CXCR4 is upregulated in many types of cancers but low in the liver and other major organs. The CXCR4 promoter contains a TATAbox, a nuclear respiratory factor-1 (NRF-1) site, and for GC boxes [1].
A 279 bp fragment of the CXCR4 promoter was shown to have a “tumor-on” status in vitro and in vivo particularly in melanoma and breast cancers [2].
