Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a genetic disease, associated with progressive motor impairment and a lack of functional ATM protein. It has been reported that immunoreactive tyrosine hydroxylase and dopamine transporter are reduced in an Atm-/- mouse model of A-T. These observations led to a hypothesis that A-T is associated with loss of nigrostriatal(More)
Various immunodeficient animals have been used as transplantation recipients for studying the growth of human tumors. We have been assessing the value of immunodeficiencies for the study of naturally arising tumors, using a model system of transgenic mice that spontaneously develop cancer of the pancreas as a result of elastase promoter-driven expression of(More)
Metastatic pancreatic cancer presents a bleak prognosis. Typically, human tumor development has been modelled in animals by generating transgenic mice carrying an oncogene, and metastasis studied by engrafting human tumor cells into immunodeficient mice. We derived mouse lines that spontaneously develop metastatic pancreatic cancer by crossing a transgenic(More)
