Gene Information

(provided by MGI)
Promoter: tetOp (Synthetic)
Name: tetracycline operon
Alteration at locus: Transgenic
Transgene: Tg(tetO-APPSwInd)885Dbo
Name: transgene insertion 885, David R Borchelt
Alteration at locus: Transgenic
Genetic Alterations:

Genotype Determination:

ES Cell Line: Not applicable

Phenotype:

Homozygous phenotype: Not evaluated
Hemizygous phenotype: Hemizygous mice are viable and fertile. These transgenic mice express a chimeric mouse/human amyloid precursor protein (APP) bearing the Swedish (KM570/571NL) and Indiana (V617F) mutations associated with Alzheimer's disease (APPswe/ind) under the control of a tetracycline-responsive promoter element (TRE; tetO). When hemizygotes are bred with another transgenic mouse expressing reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator protein (rtTA) or tetracycline-controlled transactivator protein (tTA) under the regulation of tissue-specific promoters , APPswe/ind transgene expression can be regulated in the appropriate tissue of the bitransgenic offspring with the tetracycline analog, doxycycline.

Strain of Origin: B6C3

Strain genetic background: B6C3

Strain Development: The mouse amyloid beta (A4) precursor protein (App) sequence was first modified to contain a humanized amyloid-beta (Abeta) domain. This mouse/human chimeric APP (called mo/huAPP695 or APP695) was further mutated to incorporate the Swedish (KM570/571NL) and Indiana (V617F) mutations associated with Alzheimer's disease. This APP695swe/ind sequence was placed downstream of the tetracycline-responsive promoter (TRE; tetO) promoter and mouse prion protein exons 1-2. The complete tetracycline-responsive APP695swe/ind transgene (tet-APPswe/ind) was injected into the pronucleus of fertilized eggs from (C57BL/6J x C3HeJ) F1 matings.

Colony and Husbandry Information

When maintaining a live colony, these mice are bred as hemizygotes.

Mice recovered from a cryo-archive will have health surveillance performed on recipient females. Health reports will be provided prior to shipment. If you require additional health status information, please email csmmrrc@jax.org.

Order Request Information

Limited quantities of breeder mice (recovered litter) are available from a cryoarchive; recovered litter usually available to ship in 3 to 4 months.

A link to the COU web form will be provided via email after an order has been placed; the form should be completed then or the email forwarded to your institutional official for completion.
Additional charges may apply for any special requests. Shipping costs are in addition to the basic distribution/resuscitation fees. Information on shipping costs and any additional charges will be provided by the supplying MMRRC facility.

1 The distribution fee covers the expense of resuscitating mice from the cryo-archive; you will receive the resulting litter. The litter will contain at minimum one mutant carrier; the actual number of animals and the gender and genotype ratios will vary. (Typically, multiple breeder pairs can be established from the recovered litter.) Prior to shipment, the MMRRC will provide information about the animals recovered. If you anticipate or find that you need to request specific genotypes, genders or quantities of mice in excess of what is likely from a resuscitated litter, you may discuss available options and pricing with the supplying MMRRC facility.

2 An aliquot is one straw or vial with sufficient sperm to recover at least one litter of mice, as per provided protocols, when performed at the MMRRC facility. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning the success of these procedures when performed outside the MMRRC facilities.

3 An aliquot contains a sufficient number of embryos (in one or more vials and based on the transfer success rate of the MMRRC facility) to transfer to at least two recipients. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning embryo transfer success experienced in the recipient investigator's laboratory. Neither gender nor genotype ratios are guaranteed.
