Examples of Usage
- The human LEF1 transcription factor is 'part of' the nucleus.
- "To confirm this observation, nuclear extracts were prepared from the Th1 C29 and Th2 D10 cells, and the expression patterns of LEF-1 and TCF-1 in these cells were examined by Western blot analysis. Interestingly, we found that LEF-1 was expressed in Th1 C29 but not in Th2 D10 cells (Fig. 1B). "
