PLEIADES - Neuroscience Research Tools

Details

Project TitlePLEIADES - Neuroscience Research Tools
Track CodeP6289
Short Description

These neuroscience research tools are human Mini-Promoters that drive region- and cell-specific gene expression in the mouse brain. Additional tools include expression constructs, mouse embryonic stem cell lines, and knock-in mice all of which carry brain-specific Mini-Promoters.

Abstract

The tools are designed for easy modification into your expression system, or your favorite gene into our expression system. Importantly, the UBC researchers have the expertise to deliver bioinformatically-designed and in vivo tested Mini-Promoter tools customized to recapitulate interesting gene expression patterns.

.

These tools enable region- and cell-specific gene-delivery therapies for such devastating diseases as Alzheimer, Parkinson, Huntington, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Multiple sclerosis, Spino-cerebellar ataxia, depression, autism, and cancer. Alternately, the tools may be beneficial for researchers doing drug discovery or other R&D for these types of diseases.
