Forgotten last time: Diploid mutations in ES cells - Via intra-chromosomal HR - 1/100.000 - But much better in Bloom ES cells: 1/5.000 - Bloom ES: more mitotic recombination - Bloom = mutation in exon 3 Blm gene - Blm/Blm mice viable, fertile, increased cancer incidence: 5% of mice after 1y (compare p53-/- mice 100% after 7 months)

7. Conditional mutagenesis 7.1. The Cre-LoxP system - based on Cre recombinase and loxP sites of E. Coli phage P1 Allows the following: - non-selectable mutations/removal selection genes/ translocations/big deletions. .. - cell-type-specific and inducible mutagenesis (solution for problems with conventional full KO,. ..)= conditional mutagenesis - site-specific mutagenesis
Background image of page 4
Cre-recombinase - 38kDa -C re gene (cyclization recombination) -Member± ± λ integrase superfamily - Essential for phage P1 : make P1 genome cyclic - no co-factors needed, no specific DNA structures needed for recombination at loxP sites works in mouse, yeast, bacteria, plants,. .. -temp opt = 37°C - target site is loxP (locus of x-ing over of P1)

loxP - 34 bp long - 2 inverted repeats of 13 bp + core/spacer 8 bp - oriëntation spacer determines oriëntation lox P - usually depicted as an arrow/triangle - depending on direction loxP : + possible results after cre inversion excission / integration translocation

enzymatic reactions equilibria! E.g. after excission also integration possible! (can be applied) molecular event of recombination: - recombination by ssDNA break in core regio of loxP - interaction ssDNA with P-Tyr 324 of Cre - 4 Cre molecules needed for a recombination event at 2 lox P’s
Background image of page 8
pointmutations in core lead to variant loxPs - still homotypic R possible - no longer heterotypic R possible - interessting perspectives (later) also mutant loxP that allow only integration, no excission

for efficient recombination between 2 loxP’s: - minimum 82bp distance - maximum : no limit e.g. in literature: several Mb - 34bp = a lot probably no cryptic loxP-like sites in genome (?!) - based on mouse genome sequence: indeed no such sequences - however: see further protamine-cre
Background image of page 10
Cre/loxP origin - Prokaryotic: cre has easy access to loxP’s (no nuclear envelop) - Eukaryotes: - Cre through nuclear pores - no problem - yet most cre molecules used have extra NLS

- loxP sequences usually cloned in introns at least 150bp from SD/SA - loxP best not in controle regio’s : enh/ prom/ splice signals - Realize: after R at loxP a loxP remains in genome
Background image of page 12
So, for genetic manipulation : principle : - build in LoxP sequences in genome of ES cells by classical targeting vector (with homology/ PSM / NSM) - after selection correct ES cell: 1) Cre transfection in ES site-specific recombination in ES cell Mouse or 2) make mouse from ES cells, then cross with Cre tg mouse recombination in vivo or 3) Or combination of both.
