Provided is a non-human animal that is highly practical as a hyperuricemia model, the non-human animal being the following:(a) a non-human animal obtained by producing a primary chimeric non-human animal by transplantation of human hepatocytes to an immunodeficient non-human animal with liver dysfunction; and subsequently administering a purine base-containing substance to the primary chimeric non-human animal, or(b) a non-human animal obtained by producing a serially transplanted chimeric non-human animal via two steps, a first step being a step of producing a primary chimeric non-human animal by transplantation of human hepatocytes to an immunodeficient non-human animal with liver dysfunction, a second step being a step of transplanting the human hepatocytes grown in the body of the primary chimeric non-human animal to an immunodeficient non-human animal with liver dysfunction, the second step being performed one or more times; and subsequently administering a purine base-containing substance to the serially transplanted chimeric non-human animal.

The present invention provides a mouse with liver damage, having a high degree of damage against the mouses original hepatocytes while having a uPA gene in a heterozygous form, and a method for efficiently preparing the mouse. Specifically, the method for preparing a mouse with liver damage having the uPA gene in a heterozygous form comprises the following steps of: (i) transforming mouse ES cells with a DNA fragment containing a liver-specific promoter/enhancer and cDNA that encodes a urokinase-type plasminogen activator operably linked under the control thereof; (ii) injecting the transformed mouse ES cells obtained in step (i) into a host embryo;(iii) transplanting the host embryo obtained in step (ii) via the injection of the ES cells into the uterus of a surrogate mother mouse, so as to obtain a chimeric mouse; and(iv) crossing the chimeric mice obtained in step (iii), so as to obtain a transgenic mouse in which the DNA fragment is introduced in a heterozygous form.

Phoenixbio Co. and Tottori University | Date: 2014-08-20

A chimeric non-human animal having an in vivo human hepatocyte population, wherein the effects of non-human animal cells on drug metabolism are suppressed or deleted is provided. A method for producing a chimeric non-human animal that lacks a drug-metabolizing system or has a suppressed drug-metabolizing system and is provided with a drug-metabolizing system driven by human hepatocytes, is provided. The method comprises transplanting human hepatocytes into a non-human animal characterized by (i) being immunodeficient, (ii) having liver damage, and (iii) lacking the functions of an endogenous Cyp3a gene.
