Notes
Three transgenic lines were generated and designated by the authors lines Q2-2, E1-2 (Tg(Prnp-App/APPswe)E1-2Dbo) and C3-3.

This line was generated from founder number C3-3.

Transgenic mice develop amyloid deposits in brain tissue by 18-20 months of age.

Transgenic mice that are also transgenic for Tg(PSEN1)5Dbo express both human presenilin 1 (A246E variant) and a chimeric amyloid precursor protein (APPSwe) under direction of the mouse prion protein promoter. Elevated levels of the AB1-42(43) peptide are detected in brain homogenates. By nine months of age, histological examination of brain tissue from these mice reveals numerous amyloid deposits resembling those observed in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The number of amyloid deposits increases dramatically between the ages of 10 and 12 months.
