The mutual contributions of developmental biology and genetic engineering permitted rapid development of the techniques for the creation of transgenic animals. However, it is only recently that the first two therapeutic agents isolated from the milk of transgenic animals, C1 inhibitor (Ruconest) and antithrombin (ATryn). The production of transgenic livestock has the opportunity to significantly improve human health, enhance nutrition, protect the environment, increase animal.

Use of Transgenic Animals in Biotechnology: Prospects and Problems

The first is human antithrombin III, a therapeutic protein produced in the milk of transgenic goats, which is used to prevent clots in patients with hereditary antithrombin deficiency receiving surgery or undergoing childbirth.

A relatively small herd of goats about 80 can supply transgenic animals human antithrombin III for all of Europe.

The second product is a recombinant human C12 esterase inhibitior produced in the milk of transgenic rabbits. This is used to treat hereditary angiodema, a rare genetic disorder which causes blood vessels in the blood to expand and cause skin swellings.

Discovery The ability to produce transgenic animals is reliant on a number of components. One of the first things needed to generate transgenic animals is the ability to transfer embryos.

The first successful transfer of embryos was achieved by Walter Heape in Angora rabbits in Another important component is the ability to manipulate the embryo. transgenic animals

Transgenic animals

In vitro manipulation of embryos in mice was first reported in the s using a culture system. What is also vital is the ability to manipulate eggs. Therefore, demanding a greater consideration for genetically modified transgenic animals.

Several strains of Tg mice are commercially available in many countries. However, the access to these animals for pharmaceutical researchers is very limited at this time in Iran.

For example, Harvard scientists made a major scientific breakthrough when they received a U. Since the discovery of the molecular transgenic animals of DNA by Watson and Crick inmolecular biology research has gained momentum. Molecular biology technology combines techniques and expertise from biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, developmental biology, and microbiology.

Transgenic Animals in Pharmaceutical and Biological Research in Iran

The insertion of a foreign gene transgene into an animal is successful only if the gene is inherited by offspring.

The success rate for transgenesis is very low and successful transgenic animals transgenic animals to be cloned or mated. To date, there are three basic methods of producing transgenic animals: Transgenic animals microinjection Retrovirus-mediated gene transfer Embryonic stem cell-mediated gene transfer Gene transfer by microinjection is the predominant method used to produce transgenic farm animals.

Since the insertion of DNA results in a random process, transgenic animals are mated to ensure that their offspring acquire the desired transgene. However, the success rate of producing transgenic animals individually by these methods is very low and it may be more efficient to use cloning techniques to increase transgenic animals numbers.

For example, gene transfer studies revealed that only 0.


Embryonic Stem Cell-Mediated Gene Transfer The presence of transgenes can be transgenic animals at the embryonic state in this third method. Two other main techniques were then developed: Sincewhen the term transgenic was first used by J.

Ruddlethere has been rapid development in the use of genetically engineered animals as investigators have found an increasing number of applications for the technology. Methods of creation of transgenic animals For practical reasons, transgenic animals.
