reporter gene

[ri′pȯrd·ər ‚jēn]
(genetics)
A transfected gene that produces a signal, such as green fluorescence, when it is expressed; it is typically included in a larger cloned gene that is introduced into an organism to study its temporal and spatial pattern of expression.

The same results could be obtained by dual-luciferase reporter gene assay (Figure 2(o)).
Unexpectedly, the Y473D mutation significantly diminished the transactivity of Chi as well as Ros and Pio in reporter gene assay (Figures 3(d)-3(f)), despite no hydrogen bond between Chi and PPAR[gamma] at this region, which is different from SR1664, a known partial PPAR[gamma] agonist, showing no interaction with Y473 (Supplementary Figure 4) [11].
Thus, the use of this technique has revealed a close relationship between ADCC activity and infliximab levels, determined using a specific ELISA and infliximab activity determined using a TNF[alpha] responsive reporter gene assay [23] in archival serum samples from patients with Crohn's disease.
For the reporter gene assays, the treatment was regarded as a fixed factor and the day as a random factor.

Our study showed the transcription regulation relationship between Ngn3 and Sohlh1 by ChIP and luciferase reporter gene assay for the first time, and proved that NGN3 protein may regulate spermatogenesis by forming complex with SOHLH1.Since Kaucher et al.
Reporter gene assays (Figures 3(a) and 3(b)) showed that the lycopene-induced enhancement of cytokine-stimulated gene expression involved NF[kappa]B-binding sites.
The TRAC results were compared with a luciferase reporter gene assay.
