Mutations: PSEN1 M146V
Modification: PSEN1: Transgenic
Disease Relevance: Alzheimer's Disease
Strain Name: N/A
Genetic Background: Transgene injected into fertilized oocytes from pure C57BL/6 mice.
This transgenic mouse model was generated by scientists at GlaxoSmithKline. Reports describing the phenotypic characterization of this mouse as a single transgenic are sparse in the published literature. It is best known for being one of the parental strains used to generate the TASTPM double transgenic, which develops amyloid pathology and cognitive deficits (Howlett et al., 2004).
Transgene encoding human PSEN1 carrying the M146V mutation. Transgene is driven by the murine Thy-1 promoter.
