Exploratory research using aged C57BL/6J mice provided by the Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer (IDAC), TOHOKU UNIVERSITY
As part of IDAC’s 2019 International Joint Usage and Collaborative Research Program, we would like to propose conducting research using aged C57BL/6J mice.
At our institute’s Animal Experiment Facility, the following will be provided:
a set of 27-30 months and 4-5 months old C57BL/6J background wild-type male mice in groups of 5-6 animals per cage.
Examples of experimental usage:
1. To attain comprehensive data such as transcriptome, epigenome, proteome and metabolome using plasma, tissues and organs and specific cell lineages.
2. Physiological functional tests such as motor function, behavior, stimulus response and metabolic control ability.
3. Cell biology experiment using flow cytometry.
We welcome proposals to evaluate age-related changes of normal mice in highly original experimental systems.
