Mutation detailsAn intronic floxed neo cassette and 2 missense mutations (K670N and M671L), originally identified in a Swedish kindred susceptible to familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD), were introduced into exon 16 via homologous recombination. Mutant protein was identified by Western blot analysis of mutant brain extracts. Quantification of the mutant protein showed levels to be reduced by 30% to 50% relative to Apptm1.1Cep, in which the neo cassette had been removed. (J:35500)
