Mouse / Animal Models

Conventional transgenic and knockout animals, while widely used for research and disease modelling, suffer from limitations such as embryonic lethality and irreversible gene deletions. The Tet Technology addresses these challenges by enabling tight, time- and tissue-specific, reversible control of gene expression in vivo. Tet transgenic mouse models played a crucial role in understanding diseases such as Diabetes Type I, Asthma, Alzheimer's, and Huntington's, demonstrating the potential of the Tet gene switch in reversing pathological states.
