Expression of a combination of anti-inflammatory human genes in in vitro models of xenotransplantation

Please note that the job is no longer active! Production and characterization of murine cell lines with sequence-specific genetic modification. The genetic modification will ensure the simultaneous expression of a combination of human genes that are protective against xenotransplant rejection. The genetically modified cell lines will be tested for the expression of the human genes, and the protection against pro-inflammatory stimuli will be stested in vitality and toxicity assays after exposure of cells to TNF-a or IL1-b. the molecular mechanism of the protection mediated by the overexpression of the human genes will be also evaluated.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
