Summary

These transgenic mice express a chimeric mouse/human APP carrying the Swedish mutation under the control of the mouse prion protein promoter. This line, C3-3, was generated in parallel with line E1-2, which also expresses APP carrying the Swedish mutation. Mice that are hemizygous for the transgene are viable and fertile and express mutant human APP at levels about 3-fold higher than endogenous mouse APP. These mice do not exhibit amyloid plaque deposition until approximately 18 to 20 months of age (Borchelt et al., 1997; Janokowsky et al., 2004). They do not show impairments in standard working and reference memory tasks (Savonenko et al., 2003).

This model was previously available through The Jackson Lab as Stock# 003375.

Modification Details

The transgene is a chimeric mouse/human APP (isoform 695) with a "humanized" Aβ domain and the Swedish mutation under the control of the mouse prion protein promoter.
