VP16 is a kind of protein that can activate downstream gene expression.
VP16 is a transcription activation factor, also commonly used in double yeast hybrid system. It can realize the activation of downstream UAS transcription. It is usually used together with GAL4 combining domain, which can recognize and combine with UAS, to locate UAS.

GAL4 combining domain is universal among eukaryotic cells, but the activation factor needs to be chosen differently according to the chassis creature.
