E-MEXP-536 - Transcription profiling of pancreatic islet implanted transgenic (expressing survivini) in mice
Released on 16 January 2006, last updated on 2 May 2014
Transgenic mice were generated that expressed the inhibitor of apoptosis and mitotic regulator survivin in pancreatic islet beta cells. Control non-transgenic or transgenic islets were then used in a model of islet transplantation in diabetic recipient mice and tested for their ability to correct hyperglycemia and allow long-term engraftment of tranplanted islets in vivo. Control or transgenic islets were analyzed by chip microarray for potential transcriptional changes associated with transgenic expression of survivin, in vivo.
