Use of transcriptional slippage for diverse gene expression
We present here an alternative for two-promoter systems ensuring highly diverse expression of several genes from a single promoter. This approach assumes an introduction of a deletion mutation into an A/T homopolymeric run in a gene’s proximal part, and employs the transcriptional slippage mechanism for insertion-dependent reinstatement of the proper reading frame by the T7 RNA polymerase.
