I'm looking for terms to describe experiments that look at reporter gene product activity or abundance (lacZ or GFP) as a measure of transcriptional activation. The closest terms I can find in ECO are these:
green fluorescent protein transcript localization evidence
A transcriptional activation assay that uses a green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter gene.
LacZ transcript localization evidence
A transcriptional activation assay that uses a LacZ reporter gene.
and the definitions are accurate but not the term names, since the localization of the transcripts was not looked at. Are there more appropriate terms that I'm missing? Or do we need new terms?
