I tried emailing him directly, but was not successful, so I'll address
the whole fly community directly.  Could this discussion be kept open so
we can all benefit?
I also would like to put tagged constructs into flies and check embryonic
expression.  I've got constructs tagged with hexahistidine, hemagglutinin,
and HSV - does anyone have any experience (+) or (-) with these antigens
in embryos?
Many thanks.
