  • Enhancer trap — In essence, enhancer traps are transgenic constructions by the fusing of two proteins that are inserted into the genome for the identification of enhancers. Its structure contains a mobile element (necessary for random insertion in the genome)… …   Wikipedia

  • enhancer trap — Technique for mapping gene expression patterns, classically in Drosophila. A transposon element carrying a reporter gene (usually beta galactosidase), linked to a very weak promoter, is induced to ‘jump’ within the genome. If the P element re… …   Dictionary of molecular biology
