Interactions between paired homologous genes can lead to changes in gene expression. Such trans-regulatory effects exemplify transvection and are displayed by many genes in Drosophila, in which homologous chromosomes are paired somatically. Transvection involving the yellow cuticle pigmentation gene can occur by at least two mechanisms, one involving the trans-action of enhancers on a paired promoter and a second involving pairing-mediated bypass of a chromatin insulator. A system was developed… CONTINUE READING
