Cloning and upstream sequence of a juvenile hormone-regulated gene from the migratory locust.

Abstract

As a step toward analyzing the molecular mechanism of action of juvenile hormone (JH), the gene encoding a JH-inducible 21-kDa protein (Jhp21) produced in the fat body of the migratory locust has been cloned. Four exons, representing 750 nucleotides of cDNA sequence, were found to be distributed through 13 kb of genomic DNA. Upstream 2 kb of DNA has been sequenced and three potential hormone-response elements have been identified.
