Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common primary brain cancer in adults and has a poor prognosis. It is characterized by a high degree of cellular infiltration that leads to tumor recurrence, atypical hyperplasia, necrosis, and angiogenesis. Despite aggressive treatment modalities, current therapies are ineffective for GBM. Mouse GBM models not only provide a better understanding in the mechanisms of gliomagenesis, but also facilitate the drug discovery for treating this deadly cancer. A retroviral vector system that expresses PDGFBB (Platelet-derived growth factor BB) and inactivates PTEN (Phosphatase and tensin homolog) and P53 tumor suppressors provides a rapid and efficient induction of glioma in mice with full penetrance. In this protocol, we describe a simple and practical method for inducing GBM formation by retrovirus injection in the murine brain. This system gives a spatial and temporal control over the induction of glioma and allows the assessment of therapeutic effects with a bioluminescent reporter.

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive malignant brain tumor and unfortunately is also almost always fatal. Despite advances in multiple therapeutic modalities, no effective therapy has been developed to cure GBM. The mechanisms underlying this disease remain poorly understood. Animal models have been a very important tool to define the GBM pathogenesis and test for gene or drug therapeutics. Several mouse models have been developed with the aim to produce a disease which mimics the human disease as closely as possible and exhibits similar molecular, genetic and histological character. The prominently used models are xenograft (Hingtgen et al., 2008) models where human tumor cell lines can be transplanted orthotopically in brain as well as ectopically in subcutaneous area in immunocompromised mice, providing an advantage of having a large tumor mass in a brief period. Genetically engineered mice models (GEMM) with specific gain-of oncogenic activities or loss of tumor suppressor pathways, which resemble perturbations in the most frequently dysregulated pathways in GBM, results in formation of gliomas in rodents. Genetic perturbations in GEMM models often include the gain-of-function mutations in oncogenic factors such as EGFR, PI-3K, and Ras (Holland et al., 2000; Zhu et al., 2009), and PDGF amplification (Assanah et al., 2006), as well as the loss-of-function in tumor suppressors such as NF1 (Zhu et al., 2005), TP53 (p53) (Zheng et al., 2008), Ink4a/ARF (Holland, 2001), PTEN (Holland et al., 1998 and 2000). The use of viral vectors (Ikawa et al., 2003; Hambardzumyan et al., 2009; Marumoto et al., 2009; Friedmann-Morvinski et al., 2012) such as retrovirus, lentivirus and adenovirus carrying oncogenes and/or targeting tumor suppressors has been a convenient and effective approach to induce brain tumor formation in rodents. There is a need for testing multiple different tumor models for therapeutics since different subtypes of gliomas have varied genetic profiles and clinical responses to drug treatment.

GBM have been classified into four subtypes depending upon their gene expression pattern and molecular signature, namely, Mesenchymal, Neural, Proneural and Classical tumors (Verhaak et al., 2010). The Proneural subtype of GBM predominantly involves mutations/loss in oncogene P53 and amplification of PDGFRα with loss of PTEN seen across all the subtypes (Verhaak et al., 2010; Lei et al., 2011). To closely imitate the human Proneural subtype, Lei et al. (2011) devised a GBM model by inducing PTEN and P53 deletion and PDGFBB overexpression in the progenitor cells of the white matter region of adult murine brain through retrovirus inoculation (Lei et al., 2011). We have successfully used this retrovirus-induced GBM model in mice ranging in age from day 2 to 3-month-old adult mice with remarkable reproducibility (Lu et al., 2016). This model develops gliomas with full penetrance within 3-4 weeks which in contrast to other GEMM models, which take a significantly longer time.

  1. Transfection and viral packaging procedure (Figure 1A)
    Note: We follow the manufacturer provided protocol for Polyjet mediated transfection (
    1. Day 1: Plating of 293T cells
      Plate 293T cells (around 3-4 x 106) in poly-L-lysine coated 10 cm diameter dishes in DMEM with 10% FBS media (D10 culture media). Cells will become 70-80% confluent after 24 h.
      Note: Plan accordingly to allow 5-6 h next day for transfection and medium change.
    2. Day 2: Transfection day
      1. Pre-transfection check
        1. Check for confluence next day and use the plates with 70-80% cell confluence.
          Note: Higher confluence can be a hindrance as cells don’t have space to grow.
        2. 1 h before transfection, change media with fresh D10 media–4 ml per plate.
        3. Use the following table for 10 cm plates for transfection (Table 1).

          Table 1. Transfection mix

      2. Transfection
        1. Mix the calculated concentration of DNA in 500 µl DMEM without FBS and gently mix.
        2. Add 45 µl of Polyjet in 455 µl of serum free DMEM media and gently mix with pipette and immediately mix with diluted DNA of step A2b i. Gently mix them and incubate at room temperature for 10-15 min.
          Note: Not more than 20 min.
        3. Then add it into the plates drop wise and gently shake.
        4. Incubate at 37 °C and 5% CO2 for 5 h.
          Note: Do not keep longer as it can be toxic to the cells.
        5. Discard the transfecting media and add fresh D10 10 ml per plate and incubate at 37 °C and 5% CO2 for 24 h.
    3. Day 3: 1st collection
      1. Collect the media and centrifuge at 600 x g (2,000 rpm) for 10 min and collect supernatant, leaving the cellular debris at the bottom. Collected media can be stored at 4 °C for 3 days at max (Tiscornia et al., 2006) before ultracentrifuge concentration.
      2. Add fresh D10 media 10 ml per plate and incubate again for next 24 h.
    4. Day 4: 2nd collection
      1. Collect the media and centrifuge at 600 x g (2,000 rpm) for 10 min and collect the supernatant, leaving the cellular debris at the bottom.
      2. Pool the media from day 3 and day 4 and filter using 0.45 µm pore size filter.
    5. Ultracentrifugation for viral concentration
      1. We use Beckman Coulter rotor SW 32 Ti, which has capacity to hold six 38 ml open-end tubes. Balance the tubes to the maximum difference of 0.5 g and centrifuge at 68,300 x g (20,000 rpm) for 2 h at 4 °C. With each tube holding 30 ml, a total 360 ml of media can be centrifuged in one run. If required to run more media, discard the supernatant after 1st spin without disturbing the pellet add fresh media for 2nd run.
        Note: Do not use the tubes filled less than half of its capacity which increases the risk of collapse.
      2. Pour off the supernatant after the run and aspirate rest of the droplets from the wall without disturbing the pellet.
      3. Transfer the centrifuge tubes in to 50 ml screw capped tubes and keep them upright on shaker at 4 °C overnight and allow the residual media to re-suspend pellet (roughly around 20-30 μl/tube).
      4. Centrifuge briefly and collect the re-suspended pellets from all the tubes, aliquot the concentrate in 4-10 μl volumes and store at -80 °C for more than a month. Avoid repeated cycles of thawing and freezing that can drastically reduce the viral titer.
      5. For in vivo injection, further purification of virus by sucrose cushion is recommended (Tiscornia et al., 2006).
    6. Sucrose cushion
      1. Collect the viral concentrate after overnight shaking and wash the tube with 100 µl of HBSS and pool it with collected viral concentrate.
      2. Using round bottom 5 ml tubes, fill it with 1.5 ml of 20% sucrose in HBSS and add 200 μl of viral concentrate. The rotor used is SW 55 Ti and after balancing, spin at 48,600 x g (20,000 rpm) for 2 h at 4 °C.
      3. Pour off the supernatant and allow rest to drain off by inverting the tubes. Re-suspend the pellet in 50-100 μl of HBSS, cover with Parafilm and shake slowly for 20-30 min.
      4. Collect the concentrate, aliquot it and store at -80 °C.
      5. Check for the titer in a reporter cell line. We use mouse embryonal fibroblasts, which express tdTomato reporter upon Cre expression.

  2. Titration of retrovirus
    MEF (mouse embryonic fibroblasts) cells are isolated from E13.5-14.5 embryos of CAG-Rosa-tdTomato reporter mice (THE JACKSON LABORATORY) (Durkin et al., 2013) for retrovirus titering. These cells express tdTomato when exposed to Cre-expressing viruses and allowing us to assess the viral infectivity. For virus titration, we use the procedure described by Tiscornia et al. (2006).
    1. Coat the 24-well plate with 500 µl poly-L-lysine per well with incubation at 37 °C for 30 min, aspirate the media and wash with autoclaved deionized water and let it dry for 1-2 h in biosafety hood.
    2. Plate 105 MEF cells in 500 µl D10 media per well in 24-well plate. Use a minimum of 8 wells including one as negative control.
    3. Incubate it for 6 h and then check after 6 h if they adhere to the plate.
    4. Make 10-fold dilutions of retrovirus (undiluted to 106) in PBS with total volume around 50 µl.
    5. Change 480 µl D10 media with polybrene at a concentration of 4 µg/ml.
    6. Add 20 µl of each viral dilution to the well and mix gently and thoroughly.
    7. Incubate the cells at 37 °C for 48 h. TdTomato will be visible within 24-48 h.
    8. Assess the percentage of tdTomato positive cells by counting on Neubauer cell counting chamber or by using FACS and calculate the titer by using following formula:

      Viral titer ≥ 107/ml is adequate for tumor formation.

  3. Intracranial stereotaxic injection procedure (Figure 1B)
    Note: Neonatal or young adult mice can also be used with appropriate stereotaxic device adapter.
    1. Pre-surgical preparation
      1. Switch on the incubator or heating pad.
      2. Check the micro-drill, anesthesia machine for oxygen pressure and adequate isoflurane flow and overhead light source.
      3. Set up the stereotaxic instrument as per the instructions of the manufacturer.
      4. Switch on the anesthesia machine with attachment for mouse enclosure. Oxygen flow (0.8-1.5 L/min) and isoflurane (2-3%) are set for induction of anesthesia and decreased to 1-1.5% for maintenance. Alternatively, use ketamine and xylazine combination which is injected intra-peritoneal.
      5. Load the concentrated virus in syringe (e.g., 3 µl per each mouse to be injected) slowly avoiding bubbles and set it up on the holder in stereotaxic device.
      6. Apply artificial tear ointment on exposed cornea to avoid drying.
    2. Surgical procedure
      1. Anesthetize the mouse and check the anesthesia level by toe pinch.
      2. Set up the mice on stereotaxic device with nose and ear holders firmly to avoid any accessory movement of head during the procedure and isolate the surgical area with sterile drape or covers.
      3. Clean the operative area (back of the skull) using autoclaved cotton tips with chlorhexidine and isopropanol alternatively three times each. Wait for a few minutes.
      4. Make an incision on the back of head of about 1-1.5 cm in length to expose bregma.
      5. Adjust the stereotaxic device in relation to bregma as a reference and then use the coordinates depending on the age and area of brain to be targeted (e.g., for targeting the corpus callosum in adult mice, we used the coordinates: Anteroposterior + 0.2 mm, Lateral ± 0.5 mm and dorso-ventral 2.2 mm.
      6. Mark the targeted area with surgical site marker.
      7. Drill hole in bone using micro-drill being careful to avoid going too deep.
      8. Lower the syringe needle 0.4-0.6 mm deeper to the desired depth (e.g., here 2.2 + 0.6 mm), wait for 1-2 min and retract back to desired depth to form a small pocket and slowly inject 1 μl of viral concentrate, wait for 1-2 min, retract 1 mm and inject 1 μl again. We usually inject 1-3 μl of viral concentrate in one adult mouse.
      9. Slowly retract the needle to avoid leaking of the concentrate.
      10. After complete retraction, use tissue glue to join the tissue flaps.
      11. Give buprenorphine injection intra-peritoneal. (0.05-0.1 mg/kg)
      12. Keep the mouse on heating pad or incubator till it becomes conscious.
      13. Monitor the mice for next 2-3 days and administer analgesics as per the protocol.
      14. Wash the needle with 70% ethanol and three times with sterile water.

Data analysis

The initial tumor growth can be noticed within 2-3 weeks in the brain monitored by in vivo bioluminescent imaging system such as IVIS Spectrum CT (PerkinElmer). Tumor-bearing mice normally survive for 3-6 weeks post injection depending on age at the time of injection. Neonatal mice injected at age postnatal day 2 (P2) to day 4 (P4) (48-96 h) tend to survive longer and develop a larger tumor, possibly due to the expansion of non-fused calvarial bones. The brain sections are stained with hematoxylin and eosin and tumors observed are typically invasive and hypercellular with hyperchromatic nuclei, foci of palisading necrosis and microvascular proliferation suggestive of glioblastoma (Figure 2).

【背景】胶质母细胞瘤(GBM)是最具侵袭性的恶性脑肿瘤,不幸的是几乎总是致命的。尽管多种治疗方式有进展,但是尚未开发出治疗GBM的有效治疗方法。这种疾病的机制仍然知之甚少。动物模型一直是定义GBM发病机制和基因或药物治疗试验的非常重要的工具。已经开发了几种小鼠模型,其目的是产生尽可能接近模拟人类疾病的疾病,并表现出类似的分子,遗传和组织学特征。突出使用的模型是异种移植(Hingtgen等人,2008)模型,其中人类肿瘤细胞系可以在脑中原位移植以及在免疫受损的小鼠的皮下区域异位移植,提供了具有大肿瘤块在短时间内。遗传工程小鼠模型(GEMM)具有特异性增益的致癌活性或丧失肿瘤抑制通路,其类似于GBM中最频繁失调的通路中的扰动,导致啮齿类动物形成胶质瘤。 GEMM模型中的基因扰动通常包括致癌因子如EGFR,PI-3K和Ras中的功能增益突变(Holland等人,2000; Zhu等人, ,2009)和PDGF扩增(Assanah等人,2006),以及肿瘤抑制因子如NF1的功能丧失(Zhu et al。 o,2005),TP53(p53)(Zheng等人,2008),Ink4a / ARF(Holland,2001),PTEN(Holland等人, 1998年和2000年)。使用病毒载体(Ikawa等人,2003; Hambardzumyan等人,2009; Marumoto等人,2009; Friedmann- Morvinski等人,2012),如逆转录病毒,慢病毒和携带致癌基因和/或靶向肿瘤抑制因子的腺病毒已经成为诱导啮齿动物脑瘤形成的一种方便有效的方法。需要测试多种不同的肿瘤模型用于治疗,因为不同的胶质瘤亚型具有不同的遗传概况和药物治疗的临床反应。
 根据其基因表达模式和分子标记,即间充质,神经,自主和古典肿瘤(Verhaak等人,2010),GBM已被分为四种亚型。 GBM的Proneural亚型主要涉及致癌基因P53的突变丧失和PDGFRα的扩增,所有亚型均可见PTEN的丧失(Verhaak等人,2010; Lei等人,,2011)。为了密切模仿人类Proneural亚型,Lei等人(2011)通过诱导PTEN 和P53 删除和设计了一种GBM模型, PDGFBB通过逆转录病毒接种在成年鼠脑白质区域的祖细胞中过度表达(Lei等人,2011)。我们已经成功地将这种逆转录病毒诱导的GBM模型用于具有显着重现性的第2至3月龄成年小鼠年龄的小鼠(Lu等人,2016)。该模型在3-4周内开发具有完全外显率的胶质瘤,与其他GEMM模型相比,其具有显着更长的时间。

  1. 转染和病毒包装程序(图1A)
    注意:我们遵循制造商提供的Polyjet介导转染方案( )。
    1. 第1天:电镀293T细胞
      在具有10%FBS培养基(D10培养基)的DMEM中的聚-L-赖氨酸包被的10cm直径的培养皿中的板293T细胞(约3-4×10 6)。细胞在24小时后将达到70-80%汇合。
    2. 第2天:转染日
      1. 预转染检查
        1. 检查第二天的汇合,并使用70-80%细胞汇合的板。
        2. 转染前1 h,用新鲜的D10培养基更换培养基,每片4ml
        3. 使用下表进行10cm平板转染(表1)

      2. 转染
        1. 将计算出的DNA浓度在500μl不含FBS的DMEM中混合,并轻轻混合
        2. 在455μl无血清DMEM培养基中加入45μlPolyjet,并用移液管轻轻混合,并立即与步骤A2b i的稀释DNA混合。轻轻混匀,室温孵育10-15分钟。
        3. 然后将其加入板中轻轻晃动。
        4. 在37℃和5%CO 2下孵育5小时。
        5. 弃去转染培养基,加入新鲜的D10 10 ml每个板,37℃和5%CO 2孵育24 h。
    3. 第3天:第1集
      1. 收集介质并以600 x g(2000 rpm)离心10分钟,收集上清液,留下细胞碎片在底部。在超速离心浓缩之前,收集的培养基可以在4℃下储存最多3天(Tiscornia等人,2006)。
      2. 加入新鲜的D10培养基,每个板10毫升,再孵育24小时。
    4. 第4天:第2集
      1. 收集介质并以600 x g(2000 rpm)离心10分钟,收集上清液,留下细胞碎片在底部。
      2. 从第3天和第4天装载介质,并使用0.45μm孔径的过滤器进行过滤
    5. 超速离心用于病毒浓度
      1. 我们使用Beckman Coulter转子SW 32 Ti,它具有容纳6个38毫升开口管的能力。将管平衡至0.5g的最大差异,并在6℃下以68,300×g(20,000rpm)离心2小时。每个管保持30毫升,总共360毫升的介质可以一次离心。如果需要运行更多的培养基,第一次旋转后丢弃上清液,而不会干扰沉淀物添加新鲜培养基进行第二次运行。
      2. 运行后倒出上清液,从墙壁吸出剩余的液滴,不会干扰沉淀物。
      3. 将离心管转移到50ml螺旋封口的管中,并将其在4℃的振荡器上直立放置过夜,并使剩余的介质重新悬浮沉淀(大约在20-30μl/管)。
      4. 短暂离心并收集所有管中的再悬浮颗粒,将浓缩物等分至4-10μl体积,并在-80℃下储存多个月。避免重复的解冻和冻结循环,可以大大降低病毒滴度
      5. 对于体内注射,推荐通过蔗糖垫进一步纯化病毒(Tiscornia等人,2006)。
    6. 蔗糖垫
      1. 收集病毒浓缩物过夜摇匀后,用100μlHBSS洗涤管,并用收集的病毒浓缩液将其收集
      2. 使用圆底5 ml管,在HBSS中加入1.5 ml 20%蔗糖,加入200μl病毒浓缩液。使用的转子是SW 55 Ti,平衡后,在4℃下以48,600×g(20,000rpm)旋转2小时。
      3. 倒出上清液,并通过翻转管子使休息排出。将沉淀重新悬浮在50-100μlHBSS中,用Parafilm盖住,缓慢摇匀20-30分钟。
      4. 收集浓缩物,等分并储存在-80°C。
      5. 检查记者细胞系中的滴度。我们使用小鼠胚胎成纤维细胞,其在Cre表达时表达tdTomato记录
  2. 滴定逆转录病毒
    用于逆转录病毒滴定的CAG-Rosa-tdTomato报告小鼠(The JACKSON LABORATORY)(Durkin等,2013)的E13.5-14.5胚胎分离MEF(小鼠胚胎成纤维细胞)细胞。当暴露于Cre表达病毒时,这些细胞表达tdTomato,并允许我们评估病毒感染性。对于病毒滴定,我们使用Tiscornia等人描述的程序(2006)。
    1. 每孔用500μl聚-L-赖氨酸覆盖24孔板,37℃温育30分钟,吸出培养基,用高压灭菌去离子水洗涤,并在生物安全罩中干燥1-2小时。 />
    2. 在50孔平板中,每孔500μlD10培养基中的平板10μL/孔。最少使用8口井,其中1口为阴性对照
    3. 孵育6小时,然后6小时后检查,如果它们粘在板上。
    4. 在PBS中将10倍稀释的逆转录病毒(未稀释至10×6)稀释至总体积约50μl。
    5. 用聚凝胺改变480μlD10培养基,浓度为4μg/ ml
    6. 将20μl每种病毒稀释液加入孔中,轻轻充分混匀。
    7. 在37℃孵育细胞48小时。 TdTomato将在24-48小时内看到。
    8. 通过计数Neubauer细胞计数室或使用FACS评估tdTomato阳性细胞的百分比,并使用以下公式计算滴度:

      病毒滴度≥10 / ml适合肿瘤形成。

  3. 颅内立体定位注射程序(图1B)
    1. 手术前准备
      1. 打开孵化器或加热垫。
      2. 检查微钻,麻醉机的氧气压力和足够的异氟醚流量和头顶光源
      3. 按照制造商的说明设置立体定位仪器。
      4. 打开麻醉机附带鼠标外壳。设定氧气流量(0.8-1.5L / min)和异氟烷(2-3%),用于诱导麻醉,维持时减少至1-1.5%。或者使用注射腹膜内的氯胺酮和赛拉嗪组合。
      5. 将浓缩的病毒装入注射器(例如,,每个要注射的小鼠3μl)缓慢避免气泡并将其置于立体定位装置的支架上。
      6. 在暴露的角膜上涂抹人造泪液以避免干燥。
    2. 外科手术
      1. 麻醉老鼠,并通过脚趾捏捏检查麻醉水平。
      2. 在立体定位装置上,用鼻子和耳柄牢固地设置小鼠,以避免在手术过程中头部的任何附件移动,并用无菌悬垂或盖子隔离外科手术区域。
      3. 使用高压灭菌的棉尖用氯己定和异丙醇清洗手术区域(颅骨背部),每次三次。等待几分钟。
      4. 在长度约1-1.5厘米的头后面做一个切口,以暴露出阳。。
      5. 调整相对于母体的立体定位装置作为参考,然后根据大脑的年龄和面积(例如)使用坐标,用于在成年小鼠中靶向胼the体,我们使用坐标:前后+ 0.2mm,横向±0.5mm,背腹2.2mm
      6. 用手术部位标记标记目标区域。
      7. 使用微型钻头在骨头钻孔,小心避免过深。
      8. 将注射器针头深度更低到所需深度(例如,这里为2.2 + 0.6mm),等待1-2分钟,并缩回到所需的深度以形成小口袋,并缓慢注射1μl病毒浓缩液,等待1-2 min,收缩1 mm,再次注入1μl。我们通常在一只成年小鼠中注射1-3μl病毒浓度。
      9. 缓慢收缩针头,以避免浓缩液泄漏。
      10. 完全收缩后,使用组织胶粘合组织瓣。
      11. 给予丁丙诺啡注射腹膜内。 (0.05-0.1 mg / kg)
      12. 将鼠标放在加热垫或培养箱上,直到变得清醒。
      13. 监测小鼠接下来2-3天,并按照方案进行镇痛药。
      14. 用70%乙醇洗涤针头,用无菌水洗涤3次


在体内生物发光成像系统如IVIS Spectrum CT(PerkinElmer)监测的大脑中,2-3周内可以注意到初始肿瘤生长。携带肿瘤的小鼠通常在注射后存活3-6周,这取决于注射时的年龄。在出生后第2天(P2)至第4天(P4)(48-96小时)注射的新生儿小鼠倾向于存活较长时间,并且可能由于未融合的颅骨骨骼的扩张而形成较大的肿瘤。脑切片用苏木精和伊红染色,观察到的肿瘤通常是浸润性和超细胞性,具有多色细胞核,栅栏坏死灶和暗示胶质母细胞瘤的微血管增生(图2)。
