The laboratory mouse is the premier animal model for studying human disease and thousands of mutants have been identified or produced, most recently through gene-specific mutagenesis approaches. High throughput strategies by the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) are producing mutants for all protein coding genes. Generating a knock-out line(More)
Genetic variation in the human serotonin system has long been studied because of its functional consequences and links to various neuropsychiatric and behavior-related disorders. Among non-human primates, the common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus) and tufted capuchins monkeys (Cebus apella) are becoming increasingly used as models to study the effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Susceptibility to beryllium (Be)-hypersensitivity (BH) has been associated with HLA-DP alleles carrying a glutamate at position 69 of the HLA-DP beta-chain (HLA-DPGlu69) and with several HLA-DP, -DQ and -DR alleles and polymorphisms. However, no genetic associations have been found between BH affected subjects not carrying the HLA-DPGlu69(More)
Spleen leukocytes from rats and mice immunized against mouse 2.5S nerve growth factor (NGF) and peripheral blood leukocytes from rabbits hyper-immunized against the same antigen were fused with the mouse plasmacytoma P3X63Ag8. Hybridomas were screened by immunological assays (micro-complement fixation test and solid phase radioimmunoassay) for production of(More)
