We describe a ribonucleic acid (RNA) reporter system for live-cell imaging of gene expression to detect changes in polymerase II activity on individual promoters in individual cells. The reporters use strings of RNA aptamers that constitute IMAGEtags (Intracellular MultiAptamer GEnetic tags) that can be expressed from a promoter of choice. For imaging, the(More)
The effects of substituents on the aryl ring were studied by the preparation and testing of several PD173955 analogs. Inserting a single carbon atom into the C-N bond in the aniline subunit (PDC) reduced the kinase inhibition by a factor of 200. Despite its decreased affinity for Abl compared with PD173955, PDC exhibits a Ki very similar to that reported(More)
