Control of Herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae by a yeast promoter sequence


This study presents the first evidence that the 5′ promoter region of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase gene (G-3-PD) promoter will permit expression of an adjacent foreign gene. The S. cerevisiae G-3-PD promoter was linked to the herpes simplex virus — thymidine kinase (HSV-TK) gene in a shuttle plasmid capable of… (More)
