MODELING CANCER IN VIVO Once the mechanistic underpinnings of a particular cancer have been described, creating an animal model to test that mechanism becomes critical to understanding the pathophysiology and to design therapeutic strategies for treatment. Recent advances in manipulating the mouse genome have resulted in more sophisticated models of human cancer. These methodologies can circumvent embryonic death by targeted alteration of gene expression only after a critical period in development and reduce the complexity of gene functional analysis by restricting its pattern of activation.

The clone of mutant embryonic stem cells is injected into a host blastocyst, which is implanted into a pseudopregnant foster mother and subsequently develops into a chimeric offspring (bottom panel). The contribution of the embryonic stem cells to the germ cells of the chimeric mouse results in germline transmission of the embryonic stem cell genome to offspring that are heterozygous for the mutated tumor suppressor allele. The heterozygotes are mated to produce mutant, cancer-prone mice that are homozygous for tumor suppressor deficiency.

If the ES cells contribute to the germ cells of the founder mouse, their entire haploid genome can be passed on to subsequent generations. By mating subsequent progeny of the founder mouse, both alleles of the mutated gene can be passed to a single animal. Overlapping genetic functions can also be defined by crossbreeding mice with mutations in different genes. In this way, it is possible to study the combinatorial effects of oncogene and tumor suppressor gene mutations. These experimental systems are of great value in dissecting the pathogenesis of many tumor types.
