A recent sophisticated example of is approach used a bicistronic BAC-based transgene Tg(ascl1b:eGFP-2A-creER T2) to label zebrafish cells. Introduction. e Cre‐LoxP system gene knockout (KO) technology uses e bacteriophage P1 Cre recombinase (Cre) to catalyze e excision of selected DNA sequences flanked by LoxP sequences. 1-5 Cre is a 38 kDa integrase at catalyzes recombination between LoxP sites, which are 34‐bp consensus sequences consisting of an 8‐bp core‐spacer sequence flanked by an inverted 13‐bp repeat. 6. e recombinase systems Cre/lox, Flp/FRT, R/RS, β/six and ParA/MRS have all been shown capable of germinal transmission in planta [19, 24–30]. erefore, our research investigated e publicly available phiC31 recombination system as a potential tool for e precise removal of plant transgenes. Cre‐lox. A system derived from bacteriophage P1, which is widely used for making genetic modifications in animals. Cre is a recombinase enzyme, which cuts DNA at specific sites called loxP sites. In e context of is article, e Cre‐lox system is used to label . 28, · Targeted expression in zebrafish primordial germ cells by Cre/loxP and Gal4/UAS systems.

Fur ermore, cytokine mipression is enabled only in tissue domains at can be defined by Cre recombinase expression. We have validated is system in zebrafish using an insulin: cre line. In doubly transgenic fish, quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction demonstrated increased expression levels of tnfa, il1b and ifng1 mRNA. e Dlx5/6-Cre transgene was designed wi a 3.5 kb fragment from e immediate 5'-flanking region of zebrafish dlx6a gene (including part of e 5' UTR) placed immediately upstream of a Cre recombinase coding sequence, all followed by a 1.4 kb enhancer fragment from e zebrafish dlx5a/dlx6a intergenic region (containing bo zebrafish I56i and I56ii enhancers). Typically, e cre-lox system is designed to cause excision of a critical portion of a target gene or exon when e loxP sites are in e same direction (Figure 5.1). Prof. Mosimann and Dr. Carney had previously met at e International Zebrafish meeting in Barcelona in , and over a glass of Rioja discussed e possibility to use e Tamoxifen-controlled Cre/lox technique developed by Christian to tackle e lateral plate contribution of e developing fins. So e plan was born to send me to Switzerland. Glp1r-ires-Cre mice have an IRES-Cre fusion protein inserted 3 base pairs downstream of e stop codon of e glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor (Glp1r) gene. e presence of IRES-Cre cassette downstream of e stop codon allows for expression of GLP1R and cre.GLP1R encodes a receptor present on many cell types including pancreatic β cells, subsets of neurons in e central nervous system, as.
