The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) is increasingly attractive for use as a non-human primate animal model in biomedical research. It has a relatively high reproduction rate for a primate, making it potentially suitable for transgenic modification. Although several attempts have been made to produce non-human transgenic primates, transgene expression(More)
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), an important method used to treat male subfertility, is applied in the transgenic technology of sperm-mediated gene transfer. However, no study has described successful generation of offspring using ICSI in the common marmoset, a small non-human primate used as a model for biomedical translational research. In this(More)
We investigated the effectiveness of peptide nucleic acid (PNA) clamp PCR for detecting KRAS mutations in peripheral blood samples of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. We compared KRAS point mutations between tumour tissue and blood samples. Forty-two patients were included in this study. We observed KRAS mutations in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded(More)
