......I'm looking for a human chromosome 6 cosmid librarary. Anybody there can
advice me where I can get it?
I have another question: Is there any way to identify transcriptional factors
by means of complementarity or rescue of mutants once that you have the
I will try to explain: I already have identified a promoter or at least a 2 kb
region upstream the +1 of my gene. If this region is introduced upstream of,
let's say Beta-gal and then yeast or mammalian cells are cotransformed with an
expression library, what are my chances to find a trans-activator?
The problem that I have is the limitation of tissue and haven't found any cell
line expressing my gene; thats what i thoght that perhaps in this way could
be easier to do. Any reference will be appreciated.
