TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain namePsen1 null
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takuji Sirasawa, Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology at 2002. A tk-neo cassette from pMC1-neo was inserted into the exon 9 of the Psen1 gene.
Strain descriptionB6.Cg-Psen1<tm1Shs>. Presenilin 1 has been found as a major causal gene for early-onset familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD), involving in the control of the cell cycle in neuronal precursor cells during development. Homozygous mutant embryos exhibit small body size and intracranial hemorrhages at late gestation.
Colony maintenanceBackcross to C57BL/6 (Heterozygote x C57BL/6JJcl)
