Targeting Strategy

Gene targeting strategy for B-CAG-hCD73 MC38.The exons 2-3 of mouse CD73 gene that the full-length protein domain were replaced by human CD73 CDS region in B-CAG-hCD73 MC38.


Protein expression analysis

The CD73 expression analysis in B-CAG-hCD73 MC38 cells by flow cytometry. Single cells were collected from B-CAG-hCD73 MC38 cells, and analyzed by flow cytometry with species-specific anti-CD73 antibody. Human CD73 was detectable in B-CAG-hCD73 MC38 cells.

Tumor Growth Curve & Body Weight Changes

Subcutaneous xenograft tumor growth of B-CAG-hCD73 MC38 cells. B-CAG-hCD73 MC38 cells and wild-type MC38 cells (5×105) were subcutaneously implanted into the C57BL/6N mice (female, 6-8 week-old, n=5).Tumor size and mice body weight were measured twice a week. (A) Tumor average volume ± SEM, (B) Mice body weight (Mean± SEM). Volume was expressed in mm3 using the formula: V=0.5a X b2, where a and b were the long and short diameters of the tumor, respectively. As shown in panel A, B-CAG-hCD73 MC38 were able to establish tumor in vivo and can be used for efficacy study.
