Insulators or Boundary Elements are increasingly recognized as playing a critical role in genome organization, chromatin structure and the regulation of gene expression. We present the ongoing results of our study of the CTCF Insulator Protein of mosquitoes; including in situ histochemistry, immunostaining of polytene chromosomes and the identification of DNA binding sites through chromatin immunoprecipitation.
