Destabilizing domains (DDs) have been used successfully to conditionally control the abundance of proteins of interest (POIs) in a small-molecule-dependent manner in mice, worms (Caenorhabditis elegans), and Drosophila. However, development of such systems must account for delivery of the DD-POIs to the target tissue, accessibility of the target tissue to the small molecule, and quantification of stabilization. Here, we describe the considerations and steps to take in order to effectively implement a DD-POI in mouse ocular and hepatic tissue. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Datta et al. (2018), Ramadurgum and Hulleman (2020), and Ramadurgum et al. (2020).
