Neural stem/progenitor cells (NSPCs) generate new neurons throughout life in distinct areas of the adult mammalian brain. Besides classical transgenesis-based approaches, retrovirus-mediated genetic manipulation is frequently used to study mechanisms that regulate neurogenesis in the nervous system. Here, we show that fusion of a tamoxifen-regulatable estrogen receptor (ER(T2)) motif to transcription factors (i.e., ASCL1 and NEUROD1) enables temporal control of transgene expression in adult… CONTINUE READING
