    The mouse albumin enhancer/promoter fragment was cut out of p2335A-1, which was donated by Dr. Richard Palmiter. (Pinkert CA, Ornitz DM, Brinster RL, Palmiter RD. An albumin enhancer located 10 kb upstream functions along with its promoter to direct efficient,liver-specific expression in transgenic mice. Genes Dev. 1987 May;1(3):268-276.)
