Korzh, V. (2007) Transposons as tools for enhancer trap screens in vertebrates. Genome biology. 8(1):S8.
ABSTRACTDNA transposons are efficient tools in transgenesis and have therefore become popular in the analysis of the regulatory genome in vertebrates via enhancer trap screens. Here, I discuss recent progress in this field of research, with a focus on the application of one of these transposons, namely the medaka fish derived Tol2, to enhancer trapping in zebrafish, and how this approach compares with others that have a similar objective.
