Animals with Novel Genes by Norman Maclean

By Norman Maclean

This ebook is ready transgenic animals--animals into which new genes were artificially brought. It has chapters by way of best specialists at the current state-of-play in regards to the software of the transgenic expertise to various animal teams. Scientists have performed experiments on an exceptional variety of animal forms, starting from protozoan cells, via nematode worms and fruit flies to many better vertebrates, and this e-book presents an in-depth, updated, accomplished and authoritative account of the paintings with all such animal varieties. The most likely effect of transgenic animals at the way forward for agriculture and drugs is especially nice. those animals supply an unequalled experimental method for the examine of gene law, genetic features of affliction, and gene remedy. one of many pursuits of the e-book is for that reason to set transgenic animals within the context in their current and destiny contributions to technological know-how and drugs.

Example text

The second section concentrates on attempts to apply the same technology to non-drosophilid insects. The future of transgenic insects is then briefly discussed in order to explore the potential that transgenic technology may have in insects of economic, agricultural and medical significance. 1 Historical introduction One chance event has, more than any other in recent times, generated an explosive increase in what is known of the molecular biology of Drosophila melanogaster. That chance event was the finding of male recombination among the progeny of crosses between wild caught males and laboratory stock females, reported by Hiraizumi in 1971.

This separation of 'vector' and 'helper' functions means that vector sequences can be integrated, generally as single copies, into the recipient genome, where they will remain stable, unless remobilized either by a further microinjection of 'helper' elements or purified P transposase (Kaufman & Rio 1991) or by the introduction of active P elements into the genome by way of a conventional cross. In principle, vector and 'helper' functions can be combined, but any introduced sequence would be capable of autonomous transposition and therefore unstable.

It should be noted, however, that, with certain selectable markers, transient expression from the plasmid construct may cause an altered phenotype directly in the surviving Go adults. With the pUChsneo vector, it would be inappropriate to select with G418 before the Gx generation, as Go somatic mosaics would not be expected to survive. Putative transformed Gj adults are mated individually to host strain partners. DNA from these G2 lines can be analysed to determine the molecular basis of the transformation, and the chromosomal location of the insertion can be determined by in situ hybridization.
