Typ I Interferon receptor deficient mice for analysing immunological diseases


Interferons play a vital role in the natural response on viral infection. In particular, type I interferon (IFN-I) is the focus of interest in the development of new therapeutic approaches for example in the fields of immunology, tumor diseases, multiple sclerosis and sepsis. </p> <strong>Technology</strong><br> Two novel transgenic mice have been developed, the IFNAR knock-out mouse (IFNARKO) and the conditional IFNAR mouse (IFNARCOND), both congenic on the C57BL/6 background, the mouse type from which most of the tumors used in tumor models are isolated. The IFNARKO mouse carries an ubiquitous deletion of the interferon type I receptor (IFNAR) allowing investigations into the role of IFNAR in every tissue and every stage of development. The conditional IFNAR-mouse allows the potential IFNAR inactivation by an adequate stimulus in a specific tissue or cell type. By this, the function of the IFN-I system can be investigated in its spatial and temporal dimensions for the first time by targeted time- and/or site-controlled IFNAR inactivation.<br><br>

<p><strong>Benefits</strong> <ul> <li>Both mice are congenic (IFNARKO :20x crossed back; IFNARCOND :10x crossed back) on the C57BL/6 background (tumor mice)</li> <li>IFNARCOND based on Dupont’s Cre/loxP technology</li> <li> Big variety of transgenic mice regulating expression of the recombinase Cre in different cell types or tissues allows production of almost any kind of IFNAR deletion types.</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German Utility Models<br> IFNAR-KO No. 202004019129.6<br> IFNAR-COND No. 202004019128.8 </p> <p><strong>Origin</strong><br> Breeding took place at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute (PEI) following GLP standard.</p> <p> </p>

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
