Synonyms: E1-2 line, line E1-2, Mo/Hu APPswe, Mo/Hu APPswe line E1-2, Tg(Prnp-App/APP*Swe)E1-2Dbo
Transgene: Tg(Prnp-App/APPswe)E1-2Dbo  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6J x C3H/HeJ)F2
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Prnp-App/APPswe)E1-2Dbo expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThis transgene expresses a modified mouse amyloid precursor protein cDNA encoding the 695-amino acid isoform with a "humanized" Abeta domain amino acid sequence that includes the familial Alzheimer disease- (FAD-) associated Swedish double mutation (Lys595Asn and Met596Leu). The cDNA was inserted into an expression cassette containing the promoter, 5' intronic and 3' untranslated region sequences of the mouse prion protein gene. (J:80782)

Three transgenic lines were generated and designated by the authors lines Q2-2, E1-2 and C3-3 (Tg(APP695)3Dbo). They were estimated, on the basis of Southern blot analysis, to carry 3-10 copies of the transgene.
