Tg(APPSwFlLon,PSEN1*M146L*L286V)6799Vas expresses 2 genes
Mutation detailsFour familial Alzheimer disease- (FAD-) associated mutations were introduced into a single human amyloid precursor protein cDNA: the "Swedish" double mutation (K670N/M671L); the "Florida" mutation (I716V); and the "London" mutation (V717I). Two FAD-associated mutations, M146L and L286V, likewise were introduced into a human presenilin 1 cDNA. Each cDNA was then cloned independently into the mouse thymus cell antigen 1 gene, replacing a segment that contains thymus-specific elements so that expression of the transgenes is targeted only to the brain. Equal molar amounts of the two transgenes were coinjected into pronuclei of single-celled embryos. (J:32213, J:112949)

Three transgenic lines coexpressing the APP and PSEN1 proteins at high, medium and low levels, respectively designated Tg6799, Tg7031, and Tg7092, were propagated for analysis, most of which employed Tg6799.
