    A High-throughput qPCR-based Method to Genotype the SOD1G93A Mouse Model for Relative Copy Number
    Authors:  Valerie R. Tassinari and Fernando G. Vieira, date: 06/20/2019, view: 1110, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The most commonly used mouse model in ALS preclinical research expresses multiple copies of the human SOD1 (G93A) transgene. During the course of breeding, successive generations of mice can lose copies of the transgene. Because shorter lifespan of these mice is dependent on transgene copy number, it is essential to ensure that no low-copy, and ...
    Identification of Methylated Deoxyadenosines in Genomic DNA by dA6m DNA Immunoprecipitation
    [Abstract] dA6m DNA immunoprecipitation followed by deep sequencing (DIP-Seq) is a key tool in identifying and studying the genome-wide distribution of N6-methyldeoxyadenosine (dA6m). The precise function of this novel DNA modification remains to be fully elucidated, but it is known to be absent from transcriptional start ...
    Generation of Mitochondrial-nuclear eXchange Mice via Pronuclear Transfer
    [Abstract] The mitochondrial paradigm for common disease proposes that mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence variation can contribute to disease susceptibility and progression. To test this concept, we developed the Mitochondrial-nuclear eXchange (MNX) model, in which isolated embryonic pronuclei from one strain of species are implanted into an enucleated ...
    A Quick, No Frills Approach to Mouse Genotyping
    Author:  Manuel E. Lopez, date: 08/05/2012, view: 20590, Q&A: 1
    [Abstract] Mice are extremely powerful mammalian genetic model organisms for basic and medical research, but managing a colony of transgenic mice is time consuming and expensive, many times requiring the help of dedicated technicians. Slow and laborious genotyping procedures add to the hassle. Outsourcing is costly and may not be as fast as desired, ...
