Effect of CRISPR Knockout of AXIN1 or ARID1A on Proliferation and Migration of Porcine Hepatocellular Carcinoma

In a groundbreaking study, scientists have used advanced genetic editing techniques (CRISPR) to create customized porcine models for studying liver cancer, specifically hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The researchers focused on two key genes, AXIN1 and ARID1A, which are frequently mutated in human liver cancer, and successfully replicated these mutations in pigs. This work lays the foundation for development and utilization of genetically-tailored porcine HCC models for in vivo testing of novel therapeutic approaches in a clinically-relevant large animal model.
