WASP promoter (Hematopoietic cells) in pDRIVE expression plasmid

The Wiskott–Aldrich Syndrome protein (WASP) is a major cytoskeletal regulator expressed in hematopoietic cells. Mutations in the WASP gene are associated with Wiskott‑Aldrich X-linked immunodeficiency as well as isolated X-linked thrombocytopenia (XLT). In these patients, WASP is usually significantly reduced or absent.

The WASP gene is a candidate for hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy. Indeed, researchers have demonstrated that lentiviral vectors incorporating proximal promoter sequences from the WASP gene promoter confer hematopoietic-specific and physiological protein expression [1].

Specifically, a 500-bp fragment from the proximal WASP gene promoter was shown to direct expression of a transgene. This fragment contains four potential binding sites for hematopoietic transcription factors (c-Rel, PU.1, and two ets-1 motifs) [2].
