We describe a technique for inducing localized expression of genes fused to heat-shock gene promoters. We demonstrate that a localized heat-shock response can be induced in Drosophila melanogaster at any developmental stage after formation of the cellular blastoderm by contacting a region of the animal with a heated needle. The size of the induced region can be altered by varying parameters such as the temperature and size of the needle tip. The test system utilized here is a D. melanogaster… CONTINUE READING
