The athymic nude mouse is a useful animal model for assaying the cell lines that exhibit all or most of the cellular phenotypes usually associated with (natural killer or NK cells) in determining tumor induction by animal cells in nude mice. Cytotoxic cells in immunodeficient athymic mice. A studies of cytotoxic cells in athymic nude mice demonstrate higher cytotoxic activity of NK cells and exerted by extrathymic pre-T lymphocytes with TcR gamma delta antigenic phenotype.
