GEBF-I in Drosophila species and hybrids: The co-evolution of an enhancer and its cognate factor


The activation of the Drosophila melanogaster salivary gland secretion protein gene Sgs-3 is marked by important changes in chromatin structure in the distal regulatory region at − 600 by from the Sgs-3 start site. A stage- and tissue-specific glue enhancer binding factor, GEBF-I, binds in vitro to sequences from this region. Previous studies have revealed… (More)
