|Title:||Vasectomizing a mouse.||Authors:||Murphy, D.||Issue Date:||1993||Citation:||Murphy, D. (1993). Vasectomizing a mouse.. Methods in molecular biology (Clifton, N.J.) 18 : 137-140. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Vasectomized males are needed to engender pseudopregnancy in mature female mice. Such pseudopregnant females act as hormonally and physiologically competent recipients for microinjected fertilized one-cell eggs (see Chapter 20). Vasectomized males retain their sexual potency and leave a copulatory plug after mating, but, of course, fail to transmit any sperm. Some laboratories use genetically sterile males for this purpose rather than mice rendered sterile by surgery.||Source Title:||Methods in molecular biology (Clifton, N.J.)||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/115352||ISSN:||19406029|
