Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Thy1-APPSwDutIowa)BWevn
Name: transgene insertion B, William E Van Nostrand
MGI ID: MGI:3721992
Synonyms: APPSwDI, Tg-SwDI, Tg-SwDI/B
Transgene: Tg(Thy1-APPSwDutIowa)BWevn  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Thy1-APPSwDutIowa)BWevn expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA transgenic construct containing 2.1kb of the human amyloid beta-precursor protein, APP gene, 770 isoform, with the Swedish K670N/M671L, Dutch E693Q and Iowa D694N mutations, under the control of the mouse thymus cell antigen 1, theta, Thy1, promoter was injected into fertilized C57BL/6 mouse eggs. Founder line B was subsequently established and homozygotes generated. Human amyloid beta precursor protein expression is detected in the brains of transgenic mice. Two other lines, A anc C were also generated, with line A having similar levels of transgene expression and amyloid beta accumulation to line B while line C has 2-fold higher expression of human Amyloid beta-precursor protein and shows 4-fold higher accumulations of soluble and insoluble AB peptides in the brain.
