Custom Rat Model    

It has previously been difficult to genetically engineer rats, but these limitations have been overcome by using CRISPR technology. CRISPR/Cas9 PlatformCB is dedicated to creating custom genetically edited rat models to meet specific requirements, including neuroscience, ADMET, cardiovascular and oncology, etc. Compared to traditional methods, our advanced CRISPR/Cas9 service flow enables consistent and precise targeting, eliminating the concerns and additional breeding caused by mosaicism and enabling germline transmission.

Why use a rat model?

For more than 150 years, laboratory mice have been a model for human disease research.

In a wide range of scientific fields, including neurobiology, cardiology, immunology, and toxicology, rats have been used to mimic human disease for more than a century. Their size and physiological similarity to humans make them ideal for many laboratories.

  • Mouse models are not always reliable in preclinical studies and have some limitations in mimicking human disease.
  • Their metabolism, physiology, and pathology are closer to humans than mice. Rats exhibit a more complex behavior than mice, and larger brains allow for more complex electrophysiological recordings.
  • Excellent cognitive and memory, neurological and psychological analysis, and behavioral models for drug screening.
  • Superior model of cardiovascular disease (stroke and hypertension), autoimmune diseases, diabetes, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases.
  • Complex surgical procedures can be performed on rats, which is difficult or impossible for smaller rodents.

Our customized rat models include

  • Constitutive knockout model
  • Induced expression of rat
  • Point mutation rat model
  • Conditional knockout rat model
  • Rosa26 knockin model
  • fluorescent proteins or immune-tags insertion

Our CRISPR/Cas9 rat model services include

  • Strategy design
  • gRNA target sites selection and gRNA synthesis.
  • Donor DNA design and synthesis (if needed).
  • CRISPR vector construction.
  • Plasmid microinjection by our skilled injection specialist (we will inject as many embryos as needed to fulfill the guarantee).
  • Screening, identification (via PCR and sequencing).
  • Deliver the final rat model and final report describing the details of the genome editing and showing evidence of the required editing.

Applications of CRISPR/Cas9 rat model

  • Study the function of genes/proteins
  • Human disease model
  • Drug screening and discovery
  • Preclinical safety and toxicity studies
