allophenic mice

Quick Reference

Chimeric mice produced by removing cleaving eggs from mice of different genotypes, fusing the blastomeres in vitro, and reimplanting the fused embryos into the uterus of another mouse to permit embryogenesis to continue. Viable mice containing cells derived from two or more embryos have been obtained and used in cell lineage studies. See Chronology, 1967, Mintz.
