Abstract

Transgenic mice with recoverable target genes, with genes modified in expression or with ablated gene function provide important tools for defining the biological effects of chemicals. In many cases studies can be conducted with fewer animals and in a shorter timeframe. They also provide important tools for studies of carcinogenesis mechanisms and processes, for early detection of carcinogens and for identification of potential cancer therapies.
