Cre/LoxP system has been widely used as new type of gene targeting, which can transform genes in specific tissues and organs, remove specific gene fragments, and help to study the effects of specific genes on growth and development.Cre/LoxP system is the core technology of conditional gene targeting, which induces gene targeting, and spatiotemporal specific gene targeting.The resource about the mechanism of the Cre/LoxP system is helpful to obtain the Cre transgenic mouse model on different cell types of the retina.The Cre transgenic mice with specific expression in retinal bipolar cells and ganglion cells can provide the experimental basis for the absence of specific tissue single genes during growth and development.This review focused on the Cre/LoxP system and specific Cre recombinase mouse model in eyes.
