Rovigatti, U; Afanasieva, T A; Brandner, S; Hainfellner, J A; Kiess, M; Maddalena, A; Malin, G; Rülicke, T; Steinbach, J; Weissenberger, J; Aguzzi, A (1998). Transgenic mice as research tools in neurocarcinogenesis. Journal of Neurovirology, 4(2):159-174.

Abstract

Transgenic animal models for neurocarcinogenesis have provided significant insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying carcinogenic processes, including those which affect the nervous system. In view of the very rapid pace of acquisition of knowledge, it is not possible to cover all transgenic mouse models for neural tumors. Instead, this article discusses some of the most important technical innovations for manipulation of the mammalian genome (notably the various methods for targeted genome modifications, as well as the technology for introducing large DNA fragments into the germ line of mice), and presents a selection of the transgenic mouse models which are proving most promising for furthering our understanding of the pathogenetic basis of cancer in the nervous system.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
