発明の名称 (英語) Model rat with the onset of prostatic cancer 実績あり
発明の概要(英語) (US7105717)
To provide a rat model with the onset of prostate cancer in which the prostate cancer including an invasive cancer can be developed and can be bred for generations stably.
A rat model with the onset of prostate cancer which can develop prostate cancer including invasive cancer and can be bred for generations stably is established by: ligating an SV40 large T antigen gene onto the downstream of rat probasin gene promoter; the resulting PBSVT transgene is introduced into a fertilized egg of a Sprague-Dawley rat; after the introduction, the fertilized egg is transplanted into a recipient rat; a transgenic rat obtained from the recipient rat is then mated with a wild-type Sprague-Dawley rat; the transgenic offspring rats thus obtained are similarly can be bred for generations thereafter; and transgenic rats developing prostate cancer are selected through histopathological observation of the prostate.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. A transgenic rat model with the onset of prostate cancer, wherein the genome of the transgenic rat model comprises a 2944 bp PBSVT transgene consisting of the nucleic acid sequence of the SV40 large T antigen, operably linked to a 458 bp nucleic acid sequence of the probasin gene promoter of SEQ ID NO:3, wherein the SV40 large T antigen is expressed in the prostate glands of said transgenic rat and where the transgenic rat develops prostate cancer including invasive cancer.
[claim2]
2. A method of making a transgenic rat model with the onset of prostate cancer, comprising:
(i) making a 2944 bp PBSVT transgene consisting of the nucleic acid sequence of the SV40 large T antigen, operably linked to a 458 bp nucleic acid sequence of the probasin gene promoter of SEQ ID NO:3,(ii) transfecting a fertilized egg of a Sprague-Dawley rat with said PBSVT transgene,(iii) impregnating a female Sprague-Dawley rat with said fertilized egg of a Sprague-Dawley rat,(iv) breeding offspring of the said fertilized egg of a Sprague-Dawley rat with a wild-type Sprague-Dawley rat to obtain F1 progeny that are heterozygous for the said PBSVT transgene,(v) breeding said F1 progeny to obtain F2 offspring that are homozygous for the said PBSVT transgene,(vi) selecting male rats with the onset of prostate cancer, including invasive cancer on the basis of observed histopathological changes to the prostate.
[claim3]
3. A screening method for a substance promoting the onset and/or progress of, or suppressing the onset and/or progress of prostate cancer, wherein a test substance is administered to a rat model according to claim 1, before or after the onset of prostate cancer, and wherein the onset and/or progression severity of prostate cancer in said rat model is determined and assessed.
[claim4]
4. The screening method for a substance promoting the onset and/or progress of, or suppressing the onset and/or progress of prostate cancer according to claim 3, wherein the determination and assessment of the onset and/or progression severity of prostate cancer is made by analyzing and assessing histopathological figures of prostate cancer obtained from the rat model.
[claim5]
5. The screening method of a substance promoting the onset and/or progress of, or suppressing the onset and/or progress of prostate cancer according to claim 3, wherein the determination and assessment of the onset and/or progression severity of prostate cancer is the determination and assessment of prostanoic acid phosphatase (PAP) and/or a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) produced in prostate cancer cells.
[claim6]
6. The screening method of a substance promoting the onset and/or progress of, or suppressing the onset and/or progress of prostate cancer according to claim 4, wherein the determination and assessment of the onset and/or progression severity of prostate cancer is made by analyzing and assessing histopathological figures of prostate cancer obtained from a wild-type rat of the same species as the rat model for comparison and assessment, when determining and assessing the onset and/or progression severity of prostate cancer.
[claim7]
7. The screening method of a substance promoting the onset and/or progress of, or suppressing the onset and/or progress of prostate cancer according to claim 5, wherein the level of prostanoic acid phosphatase PAP and/or a prostate-specific antigen PSA is determined and assessed for a wild-type rat of the same species as the rat model and compared to said rat model with the onset of prostate cancer.
