APOE3 Knock-In (JAX)

Synonyms: APOE3 KI, APOE*3 KI

Species: Mouse
Genes: APOE
Modification: APOE: Knock-In
Disease Relevance: Alzheimer's Disease
Strain Name: B6(SJL)-ApoEem2(APOE*)Adiuj/J
Genetic Background: C57BL/6J
Availability: The Jackson Laboratory, Stock # 029018; Live


APOE3 knock-in mice express humanized APOE3 from the endogenous ApoE locus.

Homozygotes are viable and fertile.

Modification Details

APOE3 knock-in mice were generated by using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to introduce a point mutation (leading to an arginine-to-cysteine substitution at amino acid 130) into an existing humanized APOE isoform 4 knock-in allele (ApoEtm1.1(APOE*4)Adiuj).

Related Strains

APOE4 Knock-In (JAX). APOE4 knock-in mice express a humanized APOE4 allele from the endogenous ApoE locus.

Phenotype Characterization
