Tg(tetO/Prnp-MAPT*K280)530Tli expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct contains sequence encoding a mutant deltaK280 four-repeat domain of human MAPT protein (Q244-E372) under the control of the mouse Prnp gene promoter and the tetO, tetracycline-responsive regulatory element (from the moPrP-tetP vector; 42-bp tet operator sequence copies followed by the constitutively active, minimal human cytomegalovirus promoter). Frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism is linked to human chromosome 17 Lysine 280 deletion (deltaK280 or K280del). The Lys280 deletion accelerates aggregation of MAPT (Tau). (J:240784)
