Species-specific description: Byun et al. (2017) "used recombinant lentiviruses to generate transgenic [TG] chickens expressing the 3D8 scFv gene under the control of the chicken β-actin promoter. ... [Their] results suggest that the transgenic chickens developed in this study could be useful for controlling potential within-flock AIV transmission." Yang et al. (2023) compared various parameters in non-TG and TG offspring female chickens: "Some serum parameters and cytokines were significantly different ... . Despite these differences, the mortality rates, body weight, egg production rates, and egg weight were not significantly different in the experimental groups of non-TG and TG offspring female chickens ... ."
