Erratum: Initiation of Metastatic Breast Carcinoma by Targeting of the Ductal Epithelium with Adenovirus-Cre: A Novel Transgenic Mouse Model of Breast Cancer. J. Vis. Exp. (92), e5508, (2014).

Abstract

A correction was made to Initiation of Metastatic Breast Carcinoma by Targeting of the Ductal Epithelium with Adenovirus-Cre: A Novel Transgenic Mouse Model of Breast Cancer. Protocol sections 3.1, 3.3.2, 3.4, and 4.7 were updated. The materials table was also updated.

Protocol section 3.1 was updated from:

3.1) Store adenovirus concentrated virus stocks at -80°C frozen in aliquots of 4 x 108 pfu each, sufficient for injecting 16 animals with 3 ml of 2.5 x 107 pfu of adenovirus particles.

to:

3.1) Store adenovirus concentrated virus stocks at -80°C frozen in aliquots of 4 x 108 pfu each, sufficient for injecting 16 animals with 3 µl of 2.5 x 107 pfu of adenovirus particles.

Protocol section 3.3.2 was updated from:

Mix aliquots containing 4 x 108 pfu adenovirus-Cre with sufficient 3% sucrose in sterile water for a final volume of 10 ml. Add 34 ml of MEM to the virus and gently mix. Then add 4 ml of the CaCl2 solution, gently mix, and incubate at room temperature for 15-20 min.

to:

Mix aliquots containing 4 x 108 pfu adenovirus-Cre with sufficient 3% sucrose in sterile water for a final volume of 10 µl. Add 34 µl of MEM to the virus and gently mix. Then add 4 µl of the CaCl2 solution, gently mix, and incubate at room temperature for 15-20 min.

Protocol section 3.4 was updated from:

Prior to each injection, gently flick the tube to make sure virus particles are mixed. Draw up 3 ml (2.5 x 107 pfu) of virus particles into the 10 ml syringe and prepare the mouse for the intraductal injection.

to:

Prior to each injection, gently flick the tube to make sure virus particles are mixed. Draw up 3 µl (2.5 x 107 pfu) of virus particles into the 10 µl syringe and prepare the mouse for the intraductal injection.

Protocol section 4.7 was updated from:

When the needle is appropriately placed into the mammary duct, release the 3 ml of virus precipitates (2.5 x 107 pfu of adenovirus-Cre) by gently plunging the syringe with the thumb of the hand holding the syringe. The nipple should slightly inflate as the liquid is added.

When the needle is appropriately placed into the mammary duct, release the 3 µl of virus precipitates (2.5 x 107 pfu of adenovirus-Cre) by gently plunging the syringe with the thumb of the hand holding the syringe. The nipple should slightly inflate as the liquid is added.

Item 15 in the Materials table under Comments was updated from:

10ml syringe, RN series Autoclave before and after each use. Clean with PBS and 75% ethanol.

to:

10µl syringe, RN series Autoclave before and after each use. Clean with PBS and 75% ethanol.
