Analysis of the VPE sequences in the Caenorhabditis elegans vit-2 promoter with extrachromosomal tandem array-containing transgenic strains.
TLDR
The results validate the use of large, extrachromosomal arrays of the vit genes for transgenic analysis of gene regulation in C. elegans, by confirming previous findings showing that the VPE1 at -45 and both VPE2s are sites of activation. Expand
Regulation of vitellogenin gene expression in transgenic Caenorhabditis elegans: short sequences required for activation of the vit-2 promoter.
TLDR
A functional analysis of the VPEs within the 5'-flanking region of the vit-2 gene using stable transgenic lines demonstrates that both VPE1 and VPE2 are sites for activation of the Vit-2 promoter. Expand
Macrorestriction analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans genomic DNA.
TLDR
A "macrorestriction mapping" procedure for Caenorhabditis elegans that allows the construction of restriction maps covering several hundred kilobases and the detection of polymorphic restriction fragments using probes that map several hundredkilobases away is described. Expand
Avian seed preference and weight loss experiments: the effect of fungal endophyte-infected tall fescue seeds
TLDR
The potential significance of the finding that abundant grass seeds are made unavailable to predators by fungal infection is discussed in relation to foraging and competition in avian communities. Expand
