Modification Details

Transgene containing human PSEN2 carrying the N141I mutation driven by the neuron-specific enolase (NSE) promoter.

Neuropathology

Not observed.

Cognition/Behavior

Behavioral deficits in the water maze at 12 months in mice expressing mutant as well as wild-type PSEN2, including longer escape latencies than wild-type mice, but no difference in swimming speed.

Other Phenotype

Expression of PSEN2 was higher in mice expressing mutant as well as wild-type PSEN2 compared to age-matched, non-transgenic mice. Alterations in levels of Aβ42, caspase-3 and Cox-2 proteins.
