We would like to make our readers aware of the publication by Alvarez-Castelao et al., which reports the original development of the
Floxed MetRS L274G mice for the cell-speciﬁc labelling of proteins in vivo and provides an in-depth characterisation of these mice
Breeding pairs of Floxed mice were graciously donated by Erin Schuman and coworkers well in advance of the publication by Alvarez-
Castelao et al. Application of this technology to cell transplantation, selective identiﬁcation of ‘young’ proteins in the setting of
heterochronic parabiosis, and array proteomics was developed by the Conboy laboratory.
