We report the novel cloning of the murine PHEX promoter, the gene that is mutated in X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets (XLH). Four promoter/reporter gene constructs, -133/+104, -542/+104, -1061/+104, and -2866/+104, showed significant luciferase activity (4.9-13.2-fold over background) when transfected into rat osteogenic sarcoma (UMR-106) cells.
