Mutation detailsA transgenic construct containing a cDNA sequence to human MAPT (fetal tau, Tau44 isoform) under the control of the mouse Prnp promtoer was used to create transgenic animals. Quantitative Western blot analysis showed hyperphosphorylated, insoluble MAPT protein to be widely expressed in neurons of the CNS at levels approximately 5 fold higher than the endogenous mouse counterpart.

Three founder lines were generated - lines 7, 27 and 43. Hemizygous mice from line 27 are not viable beyond 3 months and were not characterized in J:61052. Hemizygous mice from line 43 are phenotypically similar to line 7, however inclusions in the spinal cord are larger and more abundant than in line 7.
