A transient expression assay was used to localize cis-acting DNA regulatory elements near the Drosophila heat shock protein (hsp) 22 gene, that are involved in heat shock expression and in ecdysterone-induced expression. The results identify a region between positions -320 and -232 that is essential for ecdysterone control, but not for heat-induced expression, and a sequence between -199 and -156, which, when deleted, leads to the loss of heat shock induction. To investigate the function of… CONTINUE READING
