The calphotin protein, encoded by the calphotin (cap) gene, is expressed in the soma and axons of all Drosophila photoreceptor cells. It is expressed early in photo-receptor cell development, at the time when cell-type decisions are being made. Expression of calphotin is not altered by the glass mutation, which blocks photoreceptor cell development. The(More)
The consensus recognition element for the mammalian transcription factor AP-1 is very similar to that of the transcriptional activator GCN4. Here, we show that the AP-1 recognition element (ARE) found in the SV40 enhancer can activate transcription from a heterologous promoter in S. cerevisiae. This activation, however, is not dependent on the presence of(More)
