Figure 3. Transcriptional regulation by PAX6 and PAX6(5a) on motif 2–1 and 2–2 luciferase reporters. A: Distribution of the nucleotides in Pax6-binding motifs 2–1 and 2–2. The DNA sequences for gene synthesis are aligned with
the corresponding motifs. The binding sites and flanking sequences are in upper and lower case, respectively. Evaluation of
PAX6 (black bars) and PAX6(5a) (gray bars) series with 2–1 (B) and 2–2 (C) luciferase reporter in cotransfected P19 cells. The sample size n=6 from two independent triplicates. The error bars represent
the standard deviation. The significant fold-changes are indicated by the asterisks. The range of the p values are: *** <0.001,
** 0.001~0.01, * 0.01~0.05.
