Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Beta-Glucuronidase
Biological function
The uidA gene expresses beta-glucuronidase (GUS). Expression of this enzyme allows detection in the laboratory of transformed cells by using a simple colour change assay.   Typically used as a reporter gene or visual marker gene.
