Notes
Five lines were generated.

Hemizygous transgenic mice that are also homozygous for Smn1tm1Hung display:

  • a range of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)-like pathologies characterized as type 1, type 2, and type 3
    • Type 1 animals do not develop hairy fur, and die before postnatal day 10
    • Type 2 animals exhibit poor activity and variable symptoms, and die at approximately 2-4 weeks
    • Type 3 animals survive to adulthood and are fertile, but have short enlarged tails
  • Transgene copy number correlates with the amount of protein that contains the region encoded by exon 7 and the severity of SMA-like phenotypes in these animals
