Tool Details

  • Tool name: IDH1 Mutant Glioma Xenograft (JHH-273) mouse
  • Tool type: Experimental models
  • Tool sub-type: Mouse
  • Disease: Glial tumor formation
  • Model: Mutant
  • Genetic background and cross history: 4–6-week old female athymic nude mice
  • Phenotype: 4–6-week old female athymic nude mice
  • Description: An in vivo Isocitrate Dehydrogenase (IDH-1) glioma mouse xenograft model has been developed to further study effective therapies for IDH mutations characterized by increased DNA methylation and production of the common oncometabolite, 2-HG. Difficult grafting cell-culture techniques and current engineered cell line quality have limited additional laboratory studies; however, this model was developed directly from a WHO grade III- glial cell positive cancer patient tissue (JHH273) with a confirmed IDH mutation through DNA sequencing and maintains IDH-1 mutation features observed in human primary glial brain tumors. Additionally, when models were exposed to a demethlyating agent, 5-azacytidine, a reduction in methylation and tumor growth was observed opening the door for more clinical analysis. This model meets a critical need to test drug agents targeting mechanisms involved in glial tumor formation.
