Background: The mechanism driving hepatic gene expression of Foxo1 in the fasted state remains unclear. Results: Activation of cAMP-PKA pathway induces Foxo1 gene expression through CREB and co-activator P300. Conclusion: P300 mediates Foxo1 gene expression by binding to Foxo1 proximal promoter. Significance: Induction of the Foxo1 gene by cAMP-PKA via P300 fully activates the gluconeogenic program during fasting to maintain euglycemia.
