High impact information on hsp-16.41

  • The hsp16-48 promoter was shown to direct greater expression of beta-galactosidase in muscle and hypodermis, whereas the hsp16-41 promoter was more efficient in intestine and pharyngeal tissue [1].
  • The 3'-noncoding regions contain polyadenylation signals (AATAAA) either downstream (hsp16-2) or immediately adjacent (hsp16-41) to a sequence capable of forming a hairpin [2].
  • The two genes, designated hsp16-2 and hsp16-41, are arranged in divergent orientations, and each contains a single intron of 46 and 58 base pairs, respectively [2].
  • Comparisons of the derived amino acid sequences show that hsp16-1 and hsp16-2 form a closely related pair, as do hsp16-41 and hsp16-48 [3].
