HuCD34-NCG Mouse Model

The HuCD34-NCG mouse from Charles River is a study-ready mouse model with a human-like immune system, created by adoptive transfer of CD34+ stem cells. HuCD34-NCG mice are an ideal in vivo platform to evaluate the effectiveness of compounds modulating the human immune system. The lack, or late onset, of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) in humanized mice make them ideal for long-term studies.

NCG mice are humanized by adoptive transfer using human umbilical cord blood-derived CD34+ stem cells, following myeloablation treatment. Animals are subsequently housed for 12-15 weeks according to Charles River immunodeficient animal housing protocols.

During this period, CD34+ stem cells develop into human immune cells that engraft within the immunodeficient NCG mice. The presence of human immune cells are verified in the peripheral blood as early as 12-15 weeks post-engraftment, as verified by multi-color flow cytometry. These immune cells are detectable in mouse tissues, including bone marrow, spleen, liver, and lung, and have been shown to infiltrate implanted tumors.

The HuCD34-NCG mouse model is available in North America only.
