SP1 activates SNHG1 transcription in colorectal cancer cells. a Analysis of SP1 ChIP-seq, H3K4me3 ChIP-seq and DnaseI-seq data of HCT-116 cells in the SNHG1 locus. b SNHG1 expression was detected by qRT-PCR in HCT-116 and HCT-8 cells transfected with SP siRNAs or the SP1 vector. c The correlation between SP1 and SNHG1 expression analyzed in 30 paired colorectal cancer samples (n = 30, r = 0.38, P = 0.03). d ChIP assays were performed to detect SP1 occupancy at the SNHG1 promoter region, α-Satellite and DHFR were employed as negative and positive control respectively for SP1 ChIP assays. e Dual luciferase reporter assays were used to determine the SP1 binding sites on the SNHG1 promoter region. The upper left corner of the picture was SP1 binding motif provided by the JASPAR CORE database. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001
