Transgenic, humanized mouse
model of HCV infection
immunocompromised, humanized mice could be used as a model of HCV infection
to help evaluate antiviral drug candidates. Transgenic mice with stable
expression of human CD81
in the liver supported HCV entry, but infection was limited to a single
cycle. In these transgenic mice, deletion of signal
transducer and activator of transcription 1 (Stat1)
rendered the animals partially immunocompromised and susceptible to HCV
entry, infection and replication. Next steps include selecting viral variants
that replicate more robustly in a series of mouse strains with progressively
compromised immune systems to establish a fully competent mouse model of HCV
LLC is in discussion with The Jackson
Laboratory to make the mouse model available to the
