Background strain
Strain developmentA human FUS cDNA without a nuclear localization signal was inserted into the pTSC21k vector, which encodes the 8.1 kb murine Thy1.2 expression cassette. This construct was Not I digested to remove vector sequences, co-injected into the pronucleus of fertilized eggs from Slc:BDF1 strain mice. Founders were bred and backcrossed with C57Bl6/J mice to establish transgenic lines.
Strain descriptionA transgenic (tg) mouse overexpressing exogenous FUS without a nuclear localization signal (ΔNLS-FUS) develop progressive spastic motor deficits and neuronal loss in the motor cortex. The ΔNLS-FUS protein was restricted to the cytoplasm and formed ubiquitin/p62-positive aggregates. Endogenous FUS expression, nuclear localization, and splicing activity were not altered, indicating that mislocated FUS is sufficient for proteinopathy. RNA-sequence analysis revealed specific transcriptome alterations, including genes regulating dynein-associated molecules and endoplasmic reticulum stress.
