The tools of molecular biology have rapidly expanded our knowledge of how β-cells regulate insulin gene expression. As this work has progressed in parallel in different laboratories, alternate nomenclature systems have been developed to describe the functionally important elements of the insulin gene. This jumble of names is confusing to those outside the field and intimidating to neophytes. Therefore, we have agreed to a simple, uniform set of names for the major insulin gene promoter elements.
