Abstract We have accomplished gene transfer into embryos of Locusta migratoria , the African migratory locust. Freshly oviposited eggs were injected with circular or linear plasmids containing the Drosophila hsp70 promoter and the choramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) reporter gene (hsp-cat), or with circular plasmid containing the Drosophila copia promoter fused to CAT (copia-cat). Southern blot analysis showed that the hsp-cat plasmid persisted extrachromosomally for at least 8 days after… CONTINUE READING
