Sorry about the previous post!


If anoxia were a condition for expression from the ADH
promoter, a lot of interactor hunt people would be in trouble!
The Red Book (article by Golemis, Gyuris & Brent) describes the
alcohol dehydrogenase promoter as "strong constitutive".

Hope this helps though I still can't understand why you don't get
expression in the large cultures.
