- Tissues were harvested from five independent transgenic lines grown in vitro.
- Also the genetic background in common laboratory and transgenic mice affects the phenotype.
- Yet surely we should not be patenting whole life forms, such as transgenic mice or cotton plants?
- The development of transgenic mice has opened up new possibilities for mutagenicity testing in small animal models.
- Gene mutational damage in the liver can be assessed in the transgenic animal mutation assay.
