The mouse has long been considered to be the premier mammalian model system for genetic research. Scientists have looked to the mouse because of its close genetic and physiological similarities to humans, as well as the ease with which its genome can be manipulated and analyzed.

Mouse models are available in a variety of unique inbred strains and genetically engineered mutants designed to study indications ranging from cancer and diabetes to alcoholism and even drug addiction.

Normal synovial fluid is clear, pale yellow, viscid, and does not clot. It is believed to have two main functions:  to aid in the nutrition of articular cartilage by serving to distribute nutritional substances, such as glucose, and to assist in the mechanical function of joints by lubrication of the articulating surfaces. In joint diseases, such as arthritis, the synovium of the joint is the primary place where inflammation occurs.
