Gene targeting strategy

Gene targeting strategy for B-hITGAV mice. The exons 1-30 of mouse Itgav gene were replaced by human ITGAV exons 1-30 in B-hITGAV mice.

mRNA expression analysis

Species-specific ITGAV gene expression analysis in wild-type and humanized B-hITGAV mice by RT-PCR. Mouse ITGAV mRNA was detected in bone marrow cells derived from wild-type C57BL/6 (+/+) mice, while human ITGAV mRNA was detected in homozygous B-hITGAV (H/H) mice.

Protein expression analysis

Species-specific ITGAV protein expression analysis in wild-type and humanized B-hITGAV mice. Bone marrow cells were isolated from wild-type C57BL/6 (+/+) and heterozygous B-hITGAV (H/+) mice and analyzed by flow cytometry using species-specific anti-ITGAV antibodies. Murine ITGAV protein was detected in wild-type and heterozygous B-hITGAV mice, while human ITGAV protein was exclusively detected in B-hITGAV mice.
