A New Mouse Line For Tissue-Specific Expression

transgenic knockin

Transgenic Knockin Approaches Genetically modified mouse models with tissue-specific expression of a reporter gene or Cre recombinase are powerful and commonly-used tools for research. The same transgenic knockin strategies used to make such lines can also be used for tissue-specific expression of almost any gene. For example, lines for controlled expression of a mutant gene […]

4 Reasons To Use Targeted Transgenic Mice Over Random Insertion

reasons to use transgenic mice

Don’t Leave Your Research Up To Chance Our study of biology has benefited greatly from the ability to create gene constructs and express them at the cell or organism level. While introducing and establishing gene expression constructs in cells may be more straightforward and can be less rigorous in methodology or approach, transgenic animal model […]

Journey Of The Oncomouse

Journey Of The Oncomouse

The First Genetically Engineered Mouse Used to Fight Cancer Now held in the Smithsonian Institution among millions of other historically significant objects and documents, the Oncomouse – known as the first transgenic mammal to be subject to a US patent – has played a key role in recent scientific history. The mouse was first announced […]
