Description
Mice that are homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. No gene product (mRNA or protein) is detected by Northern or Western blot analysis. Alveolar wall thickening, fibrotic deposits, hemorahages in alveoli and airways are observed by histological analysis of lung tissue from homozygotes 3 months of age and older. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of Alzheimer's disease.

Development
A targeting vector containing hygromycin resistance gene driven by the phosphoglycerate kinase promoter was used to disrupt exon 5 and introducing a frame shift between exons 4 and 6. The construct was electroporated into 129P2/OlaHsd derived E14 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to C57BL/6J mice, and then backcrossed to C57BL/6J for 14 generations.

Molecular Note Replacement of exon 5 by a hygromycin cassette resulted in a frame shift between exons 4 and 6. Northern blots of RNA from brain, kidney, lung, heart, and liver of homozygous mutant mice confirmed the null mutation of the Psen2 gene. Western blots of the same tissues from homozygous mutant mice using antibodies specific for both the N- and C-termini of the Psen2 protein confirmed the mutation. [MGI Ref ID J:58118]

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
