The Cre/loxP recombination system allows the generation of tissue-specific somatic mutations in mice. Additional temporal control of somatic mutagenesis is highly desirable, as this would permit a more precise analysis of gene function in complex systems such as the central nervous system. Extending our previous studies, we compared several ligand-regulated recombinases, in which the ligand-binding domain (LBD) of the progesterone receptor or the estrogen receptor was fused to the Cre… CONTINUE READING
