gene_trap_construct    (CURRENT_SVN)

SO Accession: SO:0001477 (SOWiki)
Definition: A gene trap construct is a type of engineered plasmid which is designed to integrate into a genome and produce a fusion transcript between exons of the gene into which it inserts and a reporter element in the construct. Gene traps contain a splice acceptor, do not contain promoter elements for the reporter, and are mutagenic. Gene traps may be bicistronic with the second cassette containing a promoter driving an a selectable marker.
