An amplified promoter system for targeted expression of calcium indicator proteins in the cerebellar cortex

An amplified promoter system for targeted expression of calcium indicator proteins in the cerebellar cortex | The Postsynaptic | Scoop.it

Recording of identified neuronal network activity using genetically encoded calcium indicators (GECIs) requires labeling that is cell type-specific and bright enough for the detection of functional signals. However, specificity and strong expression are often not achievable using the same promoter. Here we present a combinatorial approach for targeted expression and single-cell-level quantification in which a weak promoter is used to drive trans-amplification under a strong general promoter. We demonstrated this approach using recombinant adeno-associated viruses (rAAVs) to deliver the sequence of the GECI D3cpv in the mouse cerebellar cortex. (...)
