Scientists Make Mouse Model of Human Cancer, Demonstrate Cure
UT Southwestern Medical Center scientists report the first successful blocking of tumor development in a genetic mouse model of an incurable human cancer. Blocking the activity of a receptor molecule named CXCR4 inhibited tumor development of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs).

STOCK Tg(Cxcr4-EGFP)CD73Gsat/Mmucd is available from the MMRRC and contains multiple copies of a modified BAC in which EGFP reporter gene is inserted immediately upstream of the coding sequence of the targeted gene.
