Constitutive gene products are used to calibrate the response of inducible genes; if these suffer degradation, the adaptive response of the gene of interest will be completely obscured.
One promoter results in constitutive gene expression (activity in most tissues) at a very high level (believed equal to or better than the CAMV 35S promoter, which is the current industry standard).
Working with experimentalists, we will quantify the kinetics of splicing in constitutive genes by labeling nascent transcripts, and estimate the effect of splicing on polymerase elongation genome-wide.
