Transposon mediated transgenesis in a marine invertebrate chordate: Ciona intestinalis
TypeJournal article; Peer reviewed
MetadataShow full item record
Achievement of transposon mediated germline transgenesis in a basal chordate, Ciona intestinalis, is discussed. A Tc1/mariner superfamily transposon, Minos, has excision and transposition activities in Ciona. Minos enables the creation of stable transgenic lines, enhancer detection, and insertional mutagenesis.
