Mutation detailsThe coding sequence of the transgene is derived from the cDNA of the familial Alzheimer disease- (FAD-) associated deltaE9 variant of human presenilin 1, which has a splice acceptor mutation upstream of exon 9 that results in a protein lacking amino acids 290-319. The mutant cDNA replaces the coding region of the mouse prion protein (Prp) gene in a construct that contains ~6 kb of genomic DNA upstream of the primary PRP translation start site and includes the noncoding first exon and first intron and, following the inserted PSEN1 sequence, ~3 kb of 3' untranslated sequence; this construct has been shown to drive expression in both neurons and glial cells of the central nervous system (CNS).

The deltaE9 PSEN1 protein variant fails to undergo endoproteolysis in cultured lymphoblasts from an affected human carrier and instead accumulates as the full-length, 40 kDa mutant protein (J:34323). Similarly, immunoblotting of of cortical and hippocampal extracts from transgenic mice under conditions that distinguish mouse and human full-length PSEN1 and their endoproteolytic derivatives demonstrates failure of the transgenic protein to undergo endoproteolysis. (J:104147)

The amount of full-length mutant human PSEN1 in brains of deltaE9 PSEN1 transgenic mice exceeds by ~60% the cumulative amount of the full-length human PSEN1 and its N-terminal derivative in brains of transgenic mice expressing wild-type human PSEN1. (J:104147)
