Unformatted text preview: bena. i) ii) iii) The hetR gene encodes a repressor of heterocyst formation. The hetR gene encodes an activator of heterocyst formation. The hetR gene encodes a protein with no effect on heterocyst formation. B) In wild-type Anabena cells, the patS-gfp transcriptional fusion is expressed in heterocysts but not in the photosynthetic cells. In cells that have the plasmid containing hetR, patS-gfp is NOT expressed in either heterocysts or photosynthetic cells. From this data, indicate what you can conclude regarding how the hetR gene product affects heterocyst development....
