Gene targeting strategy

Gene targeting strategy for B-hPDGFB mice. 

The exons 1-6 of mouse Pdgfb gene that encode the full-length protein were replaced by human PDGFB exons 1-6 in B-hPDGFB mice.

Protein expression analysis

Strain specific PDGFB expression analysis in homozygous B-hPDGFB mice by ELISA. Serum was collected from wild-type mice (+/+) and homozygous B-hPDGFB mice (H/H) and analyzed by ELISA with PDGF BB ELISA kit. Mouse PDGF BB was exclusively detectable in wild-type mice. Human PDGF BB was both detectable in wild-type mice and homozygous B-hPDGFB mice, as the kit is crossly reactive with human and mouse PDGF BB.

Summary

Protein expression analysis:

Human PDGF BB was both detectable in serum of homozygous B-hPDGFB mice and wild-type mice, as the kit is crossly reactive with human and mouse PDGF BB. Mouse PDGF BB was detectable only in wild-type mice.
