Title:
Tamoxifen-inducible gene deletion in the cardiac conduction system. 
Abstract:
Temporally controlled gene deletion provides a powerful technique for examination of gene function in vivo. To permit use of this technology in the study of cardiac pacemaking, we attempted to generate a mouse line expressing an inducible Cre recombinase selectively in cardiac pacemaker cells. The tamoxifen-inducible CreER(T2) construct was'knocked in' into the pacemaker channel HCN4 locus. In the absence of inducing agent, recombination was undetectable in HCN4-KiT mice. After injection of tamo...    »
