..The ability of GPX2 to respond transcriptionally to redox stress is likely to be more physiologically relevant than post-transcriptional regulation which is dependent upon selenium availability. ..

Identification of the correct promoter region and demonstration of transcriptional regulation in response to oxidative stress. J Biol Chem. 2000;275:13000-6 pubmed
..The identification that the first exon originally noted is in fact a minor alternative first exon far downstream of the primary first exon eliminates this conundrum. ..
