This invention relates to a gene which codes for the IL-6 gene expression inducing nuclear factor C/EBP2 capable of binding sequence-specifically to the palindrome structure SEQ ID NO:2 located in the transcriptional regulatory region of the IL-6 gene; an expression plasmid with the C/EBP2 gene incorporated therein; an transformant harboring the expression plasmid; a recombinant C/EBP2 obtained by expressing the C/EBP2 gene; and a method of producing the recombinant C/EBP2.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
