Figure 3. Gene trap vector. The promoterless reporter gene contains splice acceptor (SA) sequence. The promoterless reporter gene can be expressed when insertion of a promoter trap vector occurs in an intron and results in a transcriptional fusion due to splicing from the chromosomal splice donor (SD) site to the SA sequence.
