   Hello all.  i'm looking for some good tissue-specific promoters.  If
anyone knows of any (at least moderately) characterized promoters that are
expressed in gut, hypodermis, intestine, gonad, or neurons, please let me
know.  I'm preferably looking for promoters that drive expression
throughout development (at least post-embryonic) as well as in the adult
stage.  Also, they need to be restricted to only one cell type (i.e. only
gut, or only neurons).  I know the Hope lab has a large list of expression
patterns, but i'd be more interested in working with genes that people
have characterized in more detail or worked with before.
   Also, anyone that might actually have these promoters available in some
kind of vector  that they would be willing to share would be
eligible for my undying gratitude.  Thanks for any help.
