First, Min mice spontaneously develop intestinal tumors at 60–90 d of age. Second, COX-2 and iNOS play an important role in intestinal tumorigenesis in this model as in humans. When the genes for either COX-2 or iNOS were deleted in Min mice, few intestinal tumors were observed (22–24). Third, similar to humans, a reduction in DNA methyltransferase activity in Min mice suppresses polyp formation (22,23). As with the DMH/AOM model, the Min mouse model carries some disadvantages for chemopreventive analyses.
