Abstract

CD28 response elements (CD28REs) within cytokine promoters are variant NF-κB-binding sites and are essential for transcription in response to CD28 receptor activation in T cells. We show that the CK-1 element (CD28RE) within the GM-CSF promoter binds the RelA and c-Rel transcription factors in response to CD28 activation. We further show that the high mobility group protein HMG I(Y) can bind to the CD28REs of both GM-CSF and IL-2 and that this binding is critical for c-Rel, but not RelA, binding. A second NF-κB site in the GM-CSF promoter that binds p50 and RelA, but neither c-Rel nor HMG I(Y), failed to respond to CD28 activation. Expression of HMG I or c-Rel antisense RNA inhibited CD28 activation of the IL-2 and GM-CSF promoters, implying that HMG I(Y) enhancement of c-Rel binding plays an important role in the activity of the CD28REs.
