Oct-6 mRNA and protein is induced by IFNβ in primary fibroblasts (pMEFs) in a Tyk2-dependent manner. WT and Tyk2-/- (A, B) pMEFs were treated with IFNβ for 6 h or incubated with medium alone (Ctrl). (A) Oct-6 and (B) IP-10 mRNA levels were determined by RT-qPCR using Ube2d2 as endogenous control and calculated relative to untreated WT cells. Mean values ± SD of two independent experiments are shown. (C) WT and Oct-6-/- pMEFs were treated with IFNβ for 6 h or incubated with medium alone (0 h). Oct-6 was immunoprecipitated from whole cell extracts; panERK was used as an input control. (D) WT and Tyk2-/- pMEFs were treated with IFNβ for the times indicated. Whole cell extracts were analysed by EMSA with an octamer motif containing oligonucleotide. (E) Oct6-/-, Oct6+/- and WT pMEFs were treated with IFNβ for the times indicated. Whole cell extracts were analysed by EMSA as described in (D). (C - E) Representatives of at least two independent experiments are shown.
