  • September, 2014
    • Knockout of Ciona intestinalis genes with Crispr/Cas9 was reported. This method will be breakthrough for analyzing gene functions in Ciona. Click here for details.
  • August, 2014
    • Transgenic lines expressing fluorescent cell cycle indicator (Fucci) probes were established. The transgenic lines were utilized to analyze the functions of GnRH peptides in Ciona. NBRP has started to deliver these Fucci lines. Click here for details.
  • July, 2014
    • Prices of resources were revised. (Refer to the Price List for the charges.)
  • May, 2014
    • In Ciona intestinalis, a novel technology named "MASK" that specifically knock-down maternal transcripts has been developed. This method will be breakthrough for analyzing molecular mechanisms during oogenesis. NBRP has started to deal with MASK transgenic lines in which Ci-pem and Ci-mT genes are knocked down.

  • April, 2014
    • Prices of resources were revised. (Refer to the Price List for the charges.)
  • March, 2014
  • January, 2014
    • Knockout of Ciona intestinalis with TALE nuclease was reported. Tissue-specific knockout of genes is capable with this method. TALEN-mediated mutagenesis will be breakthrough of analyzing gene functions in Ciona. Click here for details.
