Conditional transgenics


, : Conditional transgenics. Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine 5(6): 211-217

Transgenic mice are important experimental systems for understanding the regulation of gene expression and the function of various gene products within the complex environment of an intact organism. Recombinant genes are introduced into the mouse embryo and their patterns of expression or phenotypic effects are examined. Although current technology permits one to target expression of the transgene to many distinct cell types, such as the cardiac myocyte, many experimental models require that gene expression be responsive to additional levels of control-a paradigm known as "conditional transgene expression." Here, we describe the rationale for conditional transgenics, examine the systems that have been utilized to achieve highly regulated gene expression in vivo, and consider how these new experimental approaches may improve our understanding of cardiovascular function and pathology.

A low MW factor(s) extracted from mouse tumors affected peritoneal macrophages in vitro and resulted in the modulation of their properties. Dialysates of tumor homogenates caused an enhancement in the migration of peritoneal macrophages and inhibi...

By interacting with each others, the tetraspanins are thought to assemble a network of molecular interactions, the tetraspanin web. These tetraspanin/tetraspanin interactions involve in part the palmitoylation of the proteins. We show that tetrasp...
