gene knockout mice

Is it possible to get the striatum astrocyte-specific Cre recombinase–mediated knockout of XX gene knockout mice? Any one understand how to make the knockout locate in striatum?or any other good ideas to knockout one gene in one special cell from one ...

Knockout mice

... mice this morning. "Knockdown of Cdc42 in the developing retina was achieved by crossing Cdc42 floxed mice [29] with mice expressing cre recombinase under the control of the α element of the Pax6 promoter [30]. " From Mat'l & Methods: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3553133/

Alignment in Site-specific Recombination

... for my exams and have a problem about site-specific recombination: When recombination between two DNA molecoules with lox sites through Cre-recombinase occurs, those two lox sites first have to come close to each other for recombination to start. How is this achieved, how do they find each ...

What is resolvase?

... In a Holliday junction, does it cause the crossing over or does it does it cut the strands after it crosses over? And is it the same thing as recombinase? Thanks!

Re: Allele symbols/acronyms?

... It stands for "floxed" which itself stands for "flanked by lox P sites" the lox P sequence being the recognition site for Cre recombinase. See Kuhn, et. al. (1995) Science 269, 1427-1429. You put Cre recombinase under the control of a promoter (Mx1) which is sensitive to stimulation ...
