A regulatory locus in a higher organism has been shown to control a specific messenger RNA activity. The Gur locus in mice regulates the production of kidney β-glucuronidase messenger RNA activity after induction of the β-glucuronidase structural gene, Gus, by testosterone. β-Glucuronidase messenger RNA was assayed by its ability to direct the synthesis of catalytically active murine β-glucuronidase in Xenopus oocytes.
