These reporter genes can be used as markers to identify and locate export machinery in the cell. One problem that arises with reporter proteins is that they only function in specific places of the cell. For example, alkaline phosphate and B-lactamase are two reporter proteins that can only function in the periplasmic space....   [tags: DNA, Gene, Molecular biology, Cell]
