    My book says; "Herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase promoter/enhancer-driven B-globin gene expression". Does it mean that thymidine kinase promoter/enhancer from Herpes simplex virus drives the expression of B-globin gene? :yuck:

    yep, it does. thymidine kinase is robustly expressed in a variety of cell types and the promotor is thus used as a reference for experiments.
