Allophenic mice produced from embryos aggregated with antibody
One difficulty in the production of allophenic mice by aggregation of preimplantation embryos is that they frequently roll apart before the bonds between the blastomeres have had time to form. One solution to the problem, described here, is to pretreat one of the embryos with rabbit anti-mouse serum just prior to pushing them together. Blastocyst formation is unhampered by antibody treatment, and numerous allophenic mice have already been produced with this new procedure.
