A genomic clone of glucocerebrosidase (D-glucosyl-N-acyl-sphingosine glucohydrolase; E.C. purified from a genomic library derived from a Balb/c mouse was analyzed by restriction mapping and nucleotide sequencing of its promoter and protein coding regions. Promoter activity was functionally assessed by ligation of a 2 kb glucocerebrosidase fragment to the protein coding segment of a bacterial neomycin resistance gene. Smaller segments of the 5' flanking sequence were then analyzed for their ability to initiate transcription of the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase reporter gene. A 319 bp Eco RI-Bgl II fragment (containing 259 bp upstream of the cDNA 5' limit) ligated to the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase open reading frame produced considerable activity.
