This promoter is approximately 500 bp in length and contains regulatory sequences (response elements) that mediate the action of several hormones. IRE, insulin response element; GRE, glucocorticoid response element; TRE, thyroid hormone response element; CREI and CREII, cAMP response elements. [After M. M. McGrane, J. S Jun, Y. M. Patel, and R.
