Tg(APPSwLon)96Btla expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA 650 kb YAC transgene containing the entire human amyloid beta (A4) precursor protein gene and approximately 250 kb of flanking sequence was altered to include the Familial Alzheimer's Disease- (FAD-) associated "Swedish" double mutation, APPK670N/M671L, and the "London" mutation, APPV717I. RT-PCR analysis shows hemizygous mice express the mutant human and endogenous mouse APP mRNA at similar levels in brain and peripheral tissues; levels of the most common alternative splice variants (encoding human APP-695, -751 and -770) parallel those of the endogenous mouse transcripts. Levels of total amyloid-beta and of longer amyloid-beta peptides (species terminating at amino acids 42/43) are higher than in wildtype mice, but not as high as in a similar strain carrying only the APPK670N/M671L "Swedish" mutant transgene.
