Loricrin is a major component of the epidermal cornified cell envelope, and is expressed only in terminally differentiated keratinocytes. This cell differentiation-specific expression pattern suggests specific regulatory mechanisms for activation and suppression of loricrin gene transcription in differentiated keratinocytes. Here, we identified a regulatory element in the proximal promoter region of the loricrin gene involved in suppression of its expression in keratinocytes. A database search indicated that this sequence contained a POU transcription factor binding motif. Electrophoretic mobility shift assay revealed that Oct-1, Oct-6, and Oct-11 actually bind to the motif. Constructs with point mutations in the POU-binding motif showed increased reporter activity, indicating that the POU factors negatively regulate loricrin gene transcription. Cotransfection experiments suggested that Oct-6 and Oct-11 suppress loricrin gene transcription in a cooperative manner with AP-1 and Sp1. Furthermore, in vitro experiments indicated that the Oct-6 and Oct-11 can physically associate with both AP-1 factors and Sp1/Sp3. These findings indicate that Oct-6 and Oct-11 contribute to the regulation of loricrin gene transcription via interaction with AP-1 factors and Sp1/Sp3.
