Can anyone tell me why use female BALB/c nude mice in HCC study of TCF factor? Any particular reason not using male mice instead?
As papers I read mainly use male nude mice on HCC study.

So I'm not sure it is advisable to use female mice- as less will develop the HCC for you to study.
Unless the gender specific differences is what you are interested in maybe?
