This strain is now distributed by the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center. Please refer to the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center (MMRRC) for ordering information and strain details on B6.Cg-Tg(tetO-APPSwInd)102Dbo/Mmjax MMRRC Stock Number 034845.
As a designated MMRRC center, The Jackson Laboratory will continue to distribute these mice at the same high health and
quality standards but ordering is exclusively provided through the MMRRC.
These TetAPPswe/ind mice (formerly JAX Stock No. 007051) express human APP bearing the Swedish and Indiana mutations in a tet-responsive manner. Amyloid pathology is observed when the transgene is expressed. This strain has been shown to be useful in studies correlating temporal expression of mutant APP expression with Alzheimer's-like amyloid pathology.


The genotypes of the animals provided may not reflect those discussed in the strain description or the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation. Please inquire for possible genotypes for this specific strain.

Generation Definitions
Donating InvestigatorDr. David R Borchelt,   University of Florida

Hemizygotes for this tetO-APPswe/ind transgene are viable and fertile. These transgenic mice express a chimeric mouse/human amyloid precursor protein (APP695) bearing the Swedish (KM570/571NL) and Indiana (V617F) mutations associated with Alzheimer's disease (APP695swe/ind) under the control of a tetracycline-responsive promoter element (TRE; tetO). When hemizygotes are bred with another transgenic mouse expressing either reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator protein (rtTA) or tetracycline-controlled transactivator protein (tTA) under the control of a tissue-specific promoter, APP695swe/ind expression in the appropriate tissues of the bitransgenic offspring can be regulated with the tetracycline analog doxycycline (dox). These tetO-APPswe/ind transgenic mice may be useful in studies of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.

For example, when bred to a strain expressing tTA in brain tissues (Tg(Camk2a-tTA)1Mmay), bi-transgenic offspring show 10-30 fold greater transgenic APP695swe/ind protein expression than endogenous levels and nearly complete suppression following dox treatment. The donating investigators report some differences in APP695swe/ind expression in bi-transgenic offspring dependent upon which APP695swe/ind founder line was used; line 885 (B6.Cg-Tg(tetO-APPSwInd)885Dbo/Mmjax) shows the highest APP695swe/ind expression with greater dox requirements for transgene suppression, line 102 (B6.Cg-Tg(tetO-APPSwInd)102Dbo/Mmjax) has the greatest sensitivity to dox, and line 107 (B6.Cg-Tg(tetO-APPSwInd)107Dbo/Mmjax) and line 18 are similarly intermediate.

Note that tet alone may affect neuronal degeneration and behavioral phenotypes, depending on the genetic background used (see Han et al, J. Neurosci., 2012).

In an attempt to offer alleles on well-characterized or multiple genetic backgrounds, alleles are frequently moved to a genetic background different from that on which an allele was first characterized. It should be noted that the phenotype could vary from that originally described. We will modify the strain description if necessary as published results become available.

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 (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. Transgene positive founders (line 102) were bred to transgenic Camk2a-tTA mice (B6;CBA-Tg(Camk2a-tTA)1Mmay/J) on a B6;CBA mixed genetic background. After 3-4 generations of brother-sister matings, mice harboring only the tet-APPswe/ind transgene were selected and backcrossed to C57BL/6 for at least 10 generations prior to arrival at the MMRRC at The Jackson Laboratory.

Genes & Alleles

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

Allele Symbol Tg(tetO-APPSwInd)102Dbo
Allele Name transgene insertion 102, David R Borchelt
Allele Type Transgenic (Inducible, Inserted expressed sequence)
Common Name(s) tet-APPswe/ind (line 102); tet-APPswe/ind line 102;
Mutation Made ByDr. David Borchelt,   University of Florida
Strain of Origin(C57BL/6J x C3H/HeJ)F1
Expressed Gene APP695, amyloid beta (A4) precursor protein (chimeric), mouse/human chimera
Promoter tetO, tet operator,
Molecular Note The mouse amyloid beta (A4) precursor protein (APP) sequence was modified to contain a humanized amyloid-beta (Abeta) domain. This mouse/human chimeric APP (mo/huAPP695 or APP695) was mutated to incorporate the Swedish (KM570/571NL) and Indiana (V617F) APP mutations associated with Alzheimer's disease. This APP695swe/ind sequence was placed downstream of the tetracycline-responsive (TRE or tetO) promoter and mouse prion protein exons 1-2. Line 102 was established. When mice are crossed with a line expressing a tTA transgene, these mice show the greatest doxycycline sensitivity for transgene suppression. [MGI Ref ID J:109829] [MGI Ref ID J:80782]

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.
