Hi Robert,

there is a vector that might be useful to you - it is "UAS-Stinger"
which was described in:

Barolo et al., 2000
GFP and beta-galactosidase transformation vectors for promoter/enhancer
analysis in Drosophila. BioTechniques 29(4): 726--732

and is also in GenBank as AF242366.

The vector has a UAS-nuclearEGFP marker which is flanked by Su(Hw) binding
sites and also a white+ marker. I don't know whether you could chop out the
GFP and put in whatever coding region you wanted ?

The FlyBase pages with all the info we have about this construct are:




(this second page lists the restriction sites present in the construct
which are described in the BioTechniques paper)

hope that is helpful,


Gillian Millburn.
