This technology relies on transgene integration in the targeted Rosa26 locus to overcome classical random transgenesis drawbacks. This is achieved through homologous recombination in ES cells of a targeting vector containing the transgene (conditional in most of the cases) and Rosa26 homology arms. Alternative docking sites are Hprt or Col1a1.

Advantages

  • Transgene insertion in a specific locus
  • Integration of a single-copy transgene; this minimizes the risk of silencing by methylation as the Rosa26 has been used extensively for transgene expression.
  • Transgene consistent levels of ubiquitous expression driven either by the endogenous ROSA26 promoter in the embryo or by a synthetic CMV enhancer-chicken b-actin promoter (pCAG) in later stages; all founder lines will exhibit similar expression level

Drawbacks

  • This method cannot be used to generate knock-out or knock-in models
