Adoptive cell transfer studies in regenerative research and identification of genetically modified cells after gene therapy in vivo require unequivocally identifying and tracking the donor cells in the host tissues, ideally over several days or for up to several months. The use of reporter genes allows identifying the transferred cells but unfortunately most are immunogenic to wild-type hosts and thus trigger rejection in few days. The availability of transgenic animals from the same strain… Expand
The Lewis GFP Transgenic Rat Strain is a Useful Cell Donor for Neural Transplantation
TLDR
The data show that the Lewis GFP-tg rats serve as an excellent cell source for studying primary neural precursor cells in the transplantation paradigm and there was no difference on rotation behavior or graft morphology and survival pattern as well as GFP expression between immunosuppression and nonimmunosuppressed animals. Expand
EGFP transgene: a useful tool to track transplanted bone marrow mononuclear cell contribution to peripheral remyelination
TLDR
Bone marrow mononuclear cells isolated from adult transgenic rats expressing GFP were used to reproduce the wild type model and evaluate their remyelination ability in a reversible model of Wallerian degeneration. Expand
Development and characterization of a new inbred transgenic rat strain expressing DsRed monomeric fluorescent protein
TLDR
The DsRed monomeric Tg rat provides marked cells and/or organs that can be followed for long periods without immune rejection and therefore is a suitable model to investigate cell tracking and organ transplantation. Expand
Local control of the host immune response performed with mesenchymal stem cells: perspectives for functional intracerebral xenotransplantation
TLDR
The present data indicate that the immunosuppressive properties of MSC are of great interest for the long‐term survival of xenogeneic neurons in the brain. Expand
Deimmunisation of enhanced green fluorescent protein
TLDR
An EGFP construct is developed that has reduced immunogenicity in the BALB/c model strain but maintains the fluorescent functionality to the original EGFP, presenting a novel strategy for improving tolerance to heterologously expressed proteins without the requirement for immunosuppressive intervention.

Embryo development, fetal growth and postnatal phenotype of eGFP lambs generated by lentiviral transgenesis
TLDR
This study demonstrates the high efficiency of lentiviral technology to produce transgenic sheep, with no clinic differences in comparison with non transgenic lambs. Expand
Potential Research Tool of Stem Cells from Human Exfoliated Deciduous Teeth: Lentiviral Bmi-1 Immortalization with EGFP Marker
TLDR
The immortalized cell line generated can be used as a functional tool in the lab for long-term studies of SHED and stem cell-based regeneration and provided some suggestions for potential applications of the immortalized SHED cell line with the EGFP marker. Expand
New Wistar Kyoto and spontaneously hypertensive rat transgenic models with ubiquitous expression of green fluorescent protein
TLDR
Preliminary in vitro and in vivo imaging data is shown that demonstrate the utility of the new GFP-expressing lines for adoptive transfer, transplantation and fate mapping studies of CRGN, metabolic syndrome and other traits for which these strains have been extensively studied over the past four decades. Expand
Regulatory B Cells with a Partial Defect in CD40 Signaling and Overexpressing Granzyme B Transfer Allograft Tolerance in Rodents
TLDR
The presence in the spleen of regulatory B cells enriched in the CD24intCD38+CD27+IgD−IgM+/low subpopulation, which are able to transfer donor-specific tolerance via IL-10 and TGF-β1–dependent mechanisms and to suppress in vitro TNF-α secretion is demonstrated. Expand
Animal Models of Human Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases
TLDR
Improved molecular biology techniques, embryonic stem cell technologies and the sequencing of whole animal genomes has not only increased the number of models but also has led to improved models, particularly in mice, which have been useful in studying the immune system. Expand

Development of new inbred transgenic strains of rats with LacZ or GFP.
TLDR
New inbred transgenic rat strains with lacZ and GFP based on the transgenic (Tg) animal technique in rats may provide great benefits for the elucidation of the cellular process of regenerative medicine, including cell and tissue transplantation. Expand
Lentivirally generated eGFP‐transgenic rats allow efficient cell tracking in vivo
TLDR
Adoptive transfer of purified CD4+ T‐lymphocytes from transgenic rats and subsequent reisolation from various organs further demonstrated that expression of the lentiviral transgene is maintained in a foreign host and therefore allows for efficient tracking of transferred cells. Expand
Leukocytes expressing green fluorescent protein as novel reagents for adoptive cell transfer and bone marrow transplantation studies.
Transgenic mice expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP) were generated to provide a source of labeled leukocytes for cell transfer studies. The transgene comprises the GFP coding region under theExpand
Immune response to green fluorescent protein: implications for gene therapy
TLDR
The results indicate that the immune response against EGFP may interfere with its applicability in gene insertion/replacement strategies but could potentially be employed for leukemia cell vaccines. Expand
Analysis of Green Fluorescent Protein Expression in Transgenic Rats for Tracking Transplanted Neural Stem/Progenitor Cells
TLDR
The cultured stem/progenitor cells transplanted into the spinal cord survived for at least 49 days after transplantation, and continued to express GFP, demonstrating stable expression of the GFP transgene in vivo. Expand
Germline Transmission and Tissue-Specific Expression of Transgenes Delivered by Lentiviral Vectors
TLDR
Transgenic mice carrying the green fluorescent protein (GFP) gene driven by a ubiquitously expressing promoter are generated and transgenic rats that express GFP at high levels are generated, suggesting that this technique can be used to produce other transgenic animal species. Expand
Transgenesis by lentiviral vectors: Lack of gene silencing in mammalian embryonic stem cells and preimplantation embryos
TLDR
Lentiviral vectors represent a significant improvement over oncoretroviral vectors used previously for gene transfer into murine ES cells and preimplantation embryos and ability to transfer foreign genes into human ES cells has potential relevance for the development of gene and cell-based therapies.

Male and female germline specific expression of an EGFP reporter gene in a unique strain of transgenic rats.
TLDR
The unique germ cell specific expression of EGFP makes this line of transgenic rats an excellent novel tool to study germ cell origin, development, and differentiation, and to assess the plasticity of adult somatic stem cells to become male germ cells. Expand
Production of transgenic rats by lentiviral transduction of male germ-line stem cells
TLDR
Primary cultures of rat spermatogenic cells that did not bind to collagen matrices were able to colonize and form mature spermatozoa when transferred to testes of recipient males, suggesting an enrichment in germ-line stem cells. Expand
