Advanced Protocols for Animal Transgenesis: An ISTT Manual by Karen S. Canady (auth.), Shirley Pease, Thomas L. Saunders

By Karen S. Canady (auth.), Shirley Pease, Thomas L. Saunders (eds.)

This laboratory handbook, released in cooperation with the overseas Society for Transgenic know-how (ISTT), offers just about all present tools that may be utilized to the production and research of genetically converted animals. The chapters were contributed through best scientists who're actively utilizing the expertise of their laboratories. in accordance with their first-hand event the authors additionally offer worthy notes and troubleshooting sections.

Topics diversity from normal ideas, akin to pronuclear microinjection of DNA, to extra refined and sleek tools, comparable to the derivation and institution of embryonic stem (ES) cellphone strains, with outlined inhibitors in phone tradition medium. additionally, similar issues with relevance to the sphere are addressed, together with worldwide web-based assets, felony concerns, colony administration, cargo of mice and embryos, and the 3 R’s: refinement, relief and replacement.

Worms The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) was introduced by Sydney Brenner in 1974 as a new model organism for biology and genetic studies. Due to its apparent simplicity and rapid and transparent embryo development, the entire fate map for the approximately thousand cells that constitute an adult individual was known quite soon. The sequencing of this genome triggered many comparative studies of genomes and the use of worm models in the study of complex biological processes such as ageing [33].

Claim 1 is rather broadly directed to producing transgenic birds via microinjection of an embryonic cell: A method of producing a transgenic avian, the method comprising: microinjecting into a cell of an avian embryo a DNA molecule comprising a transgene containing a nucleotide sequence encoding a heterologous 6 This would depend on the facts surrounding a particular protein and how specifically it could be identified by characteristics other than amino acid sequence. For example, antibodies are typically and adequately described by their ability to specifically bind a given antigen.

Alternatively, the Patentee might argue that the nature of the disclosure of Tag Q in the 2003 poster did not provide any suggestion or motivation to use it in conjunction with a protein like Protein X. Thus, each filing date in the series can be important to the patent analysis. 2. Broad Independent Claims Returning to the Rapp patent, we can next look at the claims. Claim 1 is rather broadly directed to producing transgenic birds via microinjection of an embryonic cell: A method of producing a transgenic avian, the method comprising: microinjecting into a cell of an avian embryo a DNA molecule comprising a transgene containing a nucleotide sequence encoding a heterologous 6 This would depend on the facts surrounding a particular protein and how specifically it could be identified by characteristics other than amino acid sequence.
