Positive and negative DNA elements of the Drosophila grimshawi s18 chorion gene assayed in Drosophila melanogaster.

Germ line transformation has been used to map the cis regulatory DNA elements responsible for the precise and evolutionarily stable developmental expression of the s18 chorion gene. Constructs containing chimeric combinations of Drosophila melanogaster and D. grimshawi DNA regions, as well as D. grimshawi sequences alone, can direct expression in the follicular epithelium, in an s18-specific temporal and spatial pattern. The results indicate that both positive and negative regulatory elements can function when transferred from D. grimshawi to D. melanogaster. The first ca. 100 bp of the 5'-flanking DNA region constitute a minimal, developmentally regulated promoter, expression of which is inhibited by the next 100-bp DNA segment and activated by positive elements located further upstream. Expression of the minimal promoter can also be enhanced by more distant chorion regulatory elements, provided the inhibitory DNA segment is absent.[1]
