Abstract

Liver-specific gene expression is regulated by four families of transcriptional activatory proteins that are not liver-specific, but are still restricted to a subset of tissues. The current opinion is that liver-specificity is a consequence of the combinatorial action of these factors, which could represent 'functional compartments' coexisting in the hepatocyte.
