Knock-In Option

An option contract that becomes active only when a certain price is reached. For example, one may purchase a knock-in option with a "knock-in price" of $35 and a strike price of $45. If the price of the underlying asset never reaches $35 at any point over the course of the option's life, the option is treated as if it never existed in the first place. If it does, however, it becomes a plain vanilla option (that is, a regular option) with a strike price of $45. See also: Up-and-In Option, Down-and-In Option, Knock-Out Option.

Advances in CRISPR gene-editing techniques are making it more efficient to make small changes in a single target gene, to knock-in or replace whole genes, or to edit multiple different genes at the same time in a single step.
The IRES technology is particularly important for evaluating the success of gene knock-outs or knock-ins in stem cells and for the successful creation of transgenic rodent disease models.
"It will go down to the last knock-ins. If it means we stay in the league (great) but we want to be better than that.
Next, using transgenic mice with the G 184S Gnai2 allele (knock-ins) which interrupts G-protein a unit binding to regulators of G-protein signaling (RGS), we found [[alpha].sub.2A]AR antiepileptic effects of EPI were enhanced in hippocampal slices from mutant G[[alpha].sub.0] mice but not G[[alpha].sub.i2] mice.
In particular, IRES is important for evaluating the success of gene deletions (knock-outs) or insertions (knock-ins) in stem cells, which is crucial for the successful creation of transgenic mouse and rat disease models.
"We never really got them on the pitch for the same time until the last knock-ins last season," he said.
s last season, right until the last knock-ins and we got out of it," he said.
