Genomic structure and identification of enhancers of foxP2. (A) foxP2 genomic region (not to scale). Coding exons are shown as solid black boxes. Predicted lef1 binding sites are shown as ovals. DNA fragments tested for enhancer activity are shown. (B) Schematic of cloning strategy for DNA fragments. PCR primers for the genomic region of interest (red box) are designed with attB4 and attB1 sites (blue boxes), and the region is amplified and cloned using a BP reaction into an entry clone. A LR reaction is performed to recombine the entry clone (containing the genomic DNA fragment) into a Tol2 destination vector, placing the genomic fragment upstream of a basal promoter and EGFP (green box). (C) Summary table of expression patterns of the different enhancers at 72 hpf in the CNS.
