Vector design Recombinant DNA methods: Simple KO Structural gene desired (e.g. insulin gene) to be "knocked out" is replaced partly or completely by a positive selection marker. (knock out function!) Vector DNA to enable the molecules to be inserted into host DNA molecules

Unformatted text preview: The cells that don't die are selected for transformation using the positive selection marker ◗ Randomly inserted vectors will be killed by gancyclovir Successfully transformed ES cells are injected into blastocysts Implantation of blastocysts ◗ The blastocysts are left to rest for a couple of hours ◗ Expanded blastocysts are transferred to the uterine horn of a 2.5 dpc pseudopregnant female ◗ Max. 1/3 of transferred blasts will develop into healthy pups Implanting blastocysts 1 2 Implanting blastocysts (cont.) 3 4 Littermates Black mouse - no apparent ES cell contribution Chimeric founder - strong ES cell contribution Chimeric founder - weaker ES cell contribution Chimeric mouse...
