Control of gene expression in specific tissues and/or at certain stages of development allows the study and manipulation of gene function with high precision. Site-specific genome recombination by the Flippase (FLP) and Cre enzymes has proven particularly relevant. Joint efforts of many research groups have led to the creation of efficient FLP and Cre drivers to regulate gene expression in a variety of tissues in Caenorhabditis elegans. Here, we extend this toolkit by the addition of FLP lines that drive recombination specifically in distal tip cells, the somatic gonad, coelomocytes and the epithelial P lineage. In some cases, recombination-mediated gene knockouts do not completely deplete protein levels due to persistence of long-lived proteins. To overcome this, we developed a spatiotemporally regulated degradation system for GFP fusion proteins (GFPdeg) based on FLP-mediated recombination. Using two stable nuclear pore proteins, MEL-28/ELYS and NPP-2/NUP85 as examples, we report the benefit of combining tissue-specific gene knockout and protein degradation to achieve complete protein depletion. We also demonstrate that FLP-mediated recombination can be utilized to identify nascent transcripts in a tissue of interest. We have adapted thiol(SH)-linked alkylation for the metabolic sequencing of RNA in tissue (SLAM-ITseq) for C. elegans. By focusing on a well-characterized tissue, the hypodermis, we show that the vast majority of genes identified by SLAM-ITseq are known to be expressed in this tissue, but with the added value of temporal resolution. These tools allow combining FLP activity for simultaneous gene inactivation and transcriptomic profiling, thus enabling the inquiry of gene function in various complex biological processes.
