NSE / RU5′ promoter (Mature neurons) in pDRIVE expression plasmid

Neuron-specific enolase, an isoenzyme form of enolase, occurs in mature neurons and paraneurons.

Transgenic mouse studies have shown that a 1.8 kb fragment of the rat NSE promoter is able to express a heterologous gene exclusively in postmitotic neurons and neuro-endocrine cells in parallel with endogenous NSE [1].

The NSE promoter contains a TATA-like sequence, no CAAT box and sequences for the AP-1 binding motif, AP-2 binding element, SP-1 binding sequence and cAMP response element [2].

The NSE promoter was used to create transgenic mice exhibiting the neuropathological phenotypes of Alzheimer's disease [3].
