Accurately manipulate gene expression by light illumination

A Hokkaido University researcher has successfully developed a method to accurately manipulate gene expression by light illumination and demonstrated its usability by creating double-headed zebrafish. It has been difficult to freely manipulate the timing and duration of gene expression using existing gene manipulation technologies, which depend on organism’s gene regulating …

Controlling body clock

  This study established an efficient method for conducting gene-rescue experiments in mutant mice. Applying the method to knock in a series of CRY1 mutants into Cry1-/-:Cry2-/- mice, researchers discovered that multisite phosphorylation around the flexible loop domains of CRY1 determine the period length of the mammalian circadian clock in …
