Abstract

Repertoires of human antibodies can be created in transgenic mice carrying human immunoglobulin-gene loci in germline configuration. These 'transloci', introduced either as miniloci or as almost locus-sized regions, undergo rearrangement and hypermutation in mouse lymphoid tissue. Here, Marianne Brüggemann and Michael Neuberger review the use of such mice for raising antigen-specific human monoclonal antibodies, as well as their exploitation for studying regulatory aspects of antibody repertoire formation.
