Analysis of the Regulatory Region of the e(r) Gene in Drosophila melanogaster

A transcriptional enhancer has been mapped to a 455-bp region upstream of the start of transcription of the e(r)gene. Deletions in these region were generated. The mutant e(r) genes were then tested for their ability to function normally. The results of these experiments and the conclusions on the location of the enhancer will be presented.

Please note that presentation times are approximate. If you are interested in attending sessions with multiple presentations, please be in the room at the start of the session.
