Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x SJL)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(SOD1*G93A)1Gur expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThis transgenic subline (designated G1H in J:76718) is derived from the G1 parental transgenic line (originally described in J:32665). This line carries a 40% expansion in transgene copy number compared to the original G1 line (described in J:32665, in MGI as Tg(SOD1*G93A)2Gur). The transgene construct is composed of the human SOD1 gene carrying a glycine to alanine transition at position 93 (G93A). The G93A mutation does not alter the activity of the protein. This line carries a high copy number. (J:32665, J:76718)

This line, G1H, was derived from the original G1 line (now designated Tg(SOD1*G93A)2Gur) reported in J:32665.

Transgenic mice on a background that involves C57BL/6 and SJL express high levels of the transgene with a 4-fold increase in SOD activity, and exhibit a phenotype similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in humans. Hemizygous transgenic mice become paralyzed in one or more limbs and have a life span of approximately 19-23 weeks. Paralysis is due to loss of motor neurons from the spinal cord.
