RSK6A1/2/3-mediated phosphorylation of CEBPB downstream of activated RAS stimulates CEBPB homodimerization and DNA binding (Lee, Shuman et al. 2010) and, specifically, RAS-induced CEBPB activation stimulates CEBPB binding to the IL6 promoter (Kuilman et al. 2008; Lee, Shuman et al. 2010). RAS-activated CEBPB is able to recruit additional transcription activators, such as EP300, to the IL6 promoter (Lee, Miller et al. 2010). NFKB transcription complex, activated by interleukin-1-alpha (IL1A) signaling (Jimi et al. 1996, Hartupee et al. 2008, Orjalo et al. 2009), also binds the promoter of the IL6 gene (Shimizu et al. 1990, Libermann and Baltimore 1990) and cooperates with CEBPB in the activation of IL6 transcription (Matsusaka et al. 1993).
