APOE2 KI mice express humanized APOE (isoform 2) from the endogenous Apoe locus.

Modification Details

APOE2 KI mice were generated by using CRISPR/Cas9 to introduce two point mutations (leading to arginine to cysteine substitutions at amino acids 130 and 176) in an existing humanized APOE4 knock-in allele (Apoetm1.1(APOE*4)Adiuj, The Jackson Laboratory Stock# 027894).

Phenotype Characterization

When visualized, these models will distributed over a 18 month timeline demarcated at the following intervals: 1mo, 3mo, 6mo, 9mo, 12mo, 15mo, 18mo+.
