A knockout mouse
refers to a laboratory mouse in which researchers have either inactivated or” knocked out” an already existing gene by replacing it or disrupting it by an artificial piece of DNA. The loss of gene activity often causes changes in a mouse phenotype that includes characteristics like appearance, behavior and other observable physical and biochemical characteristics.
Research on knockout mice model indicates that it is the fastest growing market. High investment is expected in the development of new, innovative and better knockout models. Development of new knockout models have also increased the application areas for the models. Mice models are essential tools in research activities with their capability to elucidate human disease processes, because of striking similarities between the anatomy, physiology, and genetics of humans and mice.
These advantages help promote scientific discovery, understanding of the functions of individual genes, mechanisms of different diseases, and the effectiveness and toxicities of various drug molecules. Mice models are the most commonly used animal models due to advantages including their small size, short generation time, accelerated lifespan, low cost, and requirement of less space. These factors thus help in accelerating the research and development of drug therapies.The Knockout Mice Model market
