::gfp] translational fusion. Reporter genes containing mab-3
promoter and coding sequences fused to a gfp cassette. 1497 bp of genomic DNA 5' of the mab-3
AUG were included. The reporter gene 1497pro-mab-3
::gfp contains the mab-3
promoter from 1497 and the entire mab-3
genomic coding region, and is fused in frame to a gfp cassette. A series of reporter genes containing only mab-3
promoter sequences and the first four codons of mab-3
, fused to a gfp cassette are denoted 1497pro::gfp, -1266pro::gfp, and so on. --precise ends.
