Gene Knockin Mouse

Aha! I Need a Gene Knockin Mouse... Now What?

Aha! I Need a Gene Knockin Mouse… Now What? Moving to animal studies At the start of your research, a live animal model may not have been necessary. You may have been studying a biochemical pathway or process that is highly conserved and can be investigated using cultured cells or sometimes with cell-free assays. Or […]

Mouse Model of Lymphoma

conditional point mutation

Taking Control with a Conditional Point Mutation Model When designing a point mutation mouse model you should ask yourself, “Is a mouse with this mutation present in every cell the best model for my research?” It may make more sense to only express mutant sequence in specific cells, for example when making a cancer model. There […]

Expand the Possibilities of Humanized Models

humanized models

…Beyond the Coding Sequence. Human genetic sequences have been routinely inserted into the mouse genome since the early 1980s when reliable methods were first developed. These genetically humanized models were quickly recognized as a means to study human diseases or produce specific valuable human proteins. Recent method development has expanded the possibilities for genetic humanization and […]
