Figure 3. TAp73 physically binds ATP7A genomic areas. (a) Schematic map of the human ATP7A gene. MatInspector professional software suggested promoter region containing p53 family members-response elements is indicated in red; the insert shows the sequence of the p53 family member-RE chosen, the nearest to the TSS (ChrX: 77,961,553-77,962,65). In yellow ATP7A promoter region found on Eukaryotic Promoter Database by selecting a region from -1000 to 100 bp relative to TSS CAGEseq derived (ChrX: 77,909,608- 77,910,867) [Human Dec. 2013 (GRCh38/hg38)]. (b) A tagged TAp73 was overexpressed in H1299 and 293T cell lines for 24h. The sonicated chromatin was incubated with anti-HA or IgG antibodies. Immunoprecipitated DNA was amplified by PCR with ATP7A primers, one (ATP7A1) amplifying Eukaryotic Database suggested promoter, the other (ATP7A2) recognizing the p53-response element found on MatInspector. ChIP on MDM2 promoter was performed as a positive control, and ChIP on SAT2 promoter as a negative control. NC: PCR negative control. Figure shows a representative replicate of two independent experiments.
