      The Cre-Lox system is a powerful gene manipulation tool that enables controlled gene expression in a specific tissue or by induction in mouse models. Such controlled/ conditional gene expression or ablation enables deeper study of gene function without problems such as artificial phenotype(s) and embryonic lethality.

      Applied StemCell offers several ready-to-use, mouse models expressing Cre recombinase under the control of various tissue-specific and/or inducible promoters as well as Cre-reporter mice:

      • Well-characterized Cre driver mouse lines
      • Generate temporal and/or spatial control of gene expression mouse models
      • Breed with your loxP floxed mice or we can generate a custom floxed mouse for you using our PrimeCKo™ Conditional Mouse Model Generation Service; in your facility or ours
