Targeted expression of Cre recombinase to adipose tissue of transgenic mice directs adipose-specific excision of loxP-flanked gene segments.


Functional analysis of mammalian genes relies, in part, on targeted mutations generated by homologous recombination in mice. We have developed a strategy for adipose-specific inactivation of loxP-floxed gene segments. Transgenic mice have been established that express Cre recombinase under the control of the adipose-specific aP2 enhancer/promoter. Crossing… (More)
