The introduction of humanized mice has revolutionized the world of laboratory research. New research proves that the use of humanized mice not only more accurately represents the human response to treatment than conventional mice, but also allows for ethical and humane testing.
What is a humanized mouse?
Humanized mouse is laboratory mouse that have been genetically modified to have more human-like characteristics. These mice are commonly used in research involving human disease.
Humanized mice have been created by introducing human genes into the genomes of laboratory mice. The most common method is to use a technique called “recombinant DNA” (rDNA). rDNA technology involves combining DNA from two different sources and inserting the resulting hybrid DNA into the genome of another organism.
Humanized mice can be used to study a variety of human diseases, including cancer, infectious diseases, and genetic diseases. They are also used to develop new treatments for these diseases. In some cases, humanized mice have even been used to study the effects of space travel on the human body!
Differences from other types of mice
A humanized mouse is a research tool that has been genetically modified to have a human immune system. This makes them a valuable asset for studying human disease, as they can be used to test new treatments and vaccines.
However, there are some key differences worth noting between humanized mice and other types of mice. For one thing, humanized mice are much more expensive to produce than regular mice. Also, they don’t usually live as long as normal mice due to stress on the body’s immune system. Finally, because they are so valuable to research, humanized mice are often only found in specialized laboratories.
With the development of research on the effects of immunity and inflammation on cancer, the performance of humanized mice has attracted much attention in clinical oncology research. The use of gene editing technology to construct humanized mouse antibodies has become an important part of antibody drug discovery. .important topic.
Using TurboKnockout® RMCE and BAC technologies, Cyagen can generate large fragment knock-in (LFKI) humanized mouse models expressing human antibody genes, using data from thousands of knock-in mouse model projects completed by our team, if you To collaborate with our research organization, please feel free to contact Cyagen.
