Problems with genes that act in multiple tissues, at multiple times How to activate the mutation at a time or in the tissue of choice? Solution: “conditional” knock-out, using microbial recombinase systems: Cre recombinase, recognises loxP sequences (originally found in P1 bacteriophage) FLP recombinase, recognizes FRTsequences (from yeast)

Tissue-specific disruption of a gene using Cre/ LoxP system floxed gene “deleter” mouse, expresses cre recombinase: - Depending on the promoter to which Cre is fused, it can be expressed either in all cells, or just in a subset of cells (brain, liver, etc) For more information:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
