These hTDP-43M337V transgenic mice express a full length mutant human TAR DNA binding protein (TARDBP or TDP-43) cDNA under the direction of a mouse prion protein promoter. The cDNA is modified such that at codon 337, a methionine to replaced by a valine(M337V). The M337V mutation is associated with increased low molecular weight fragments, neuronal apoptosis and developmental delay in chick embryos. TDP-43 is a ubiquinated protein localized to the nucleus of cells. Accumulations of TDP-43 are associated with the development of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Hemizygotes are viable, fertile, and normal in size, while homozygotes are initially viable with 70% dying within the first month of life. These mice express human TDP-43M337V primarily in the nuclei of neurons throughout much of the gray matter of the spinal cord and brain, including the brainstem and cortex. Homozygotes and hemizygous express TDP-43M337V in brain at 2.7 and 1.9-fold endogenous TDP-43 levels, respectively. Endogenous TDP-43 is down-regulated in response to transgene overexpression. By 21 days of age homozygotes develop body tremors, have difficulty walking, and develop an irregular "dragging" gait. By 1 month of age, homozygous TDP-43M337V mutants are smaller than hemizygous littermates, exhibit muscle weakness and become unable to right themselves. These mice exhibit reactive gliosis, and TDP-43M337V/ubiquitin aggregates containing phosphorylated TDP-43M337V. Hemizygous mice are indistinguishable from wildtype littermates. These transgenic mice may be useful in studying neuromuscular and neurodegenerative disorders such as ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration with ubiquitin aggregates.
The hTDP-43M337V transgene was designed with the mouse prion protein (Prnp) promoter driving expression of a mutant form of the human TARDBP gene modified to have the methionine to valine substitution at codon 337 (M337V). The transgene was microinjected into fertilized C57BL/6 oocytes. Mice from the founder line 4 were bred to C57BL/6 mice to generate the hTDP-43M337V line 4 colony. Transgenic mice from line 4 were bred together, and then maintained by breeding homozygous mice together for several generations prior to sending to The Jackson Laboratory Repository. Upon arrival, transgenic mice were bred to C57BL/6J mice (Stock No. 000664) for at least one generation to establish the colony.

|Please inquire about possible genotypes.|
The average number of mice provided from recovery of our cryopreserved strains is 10. The total number of animals provided,
their gender and genotype will vary. We will fulfill your order by providing at least two pair of mice, at least one animal of
each pair carrying the mutation of interest. Please inquire if larger numbers of animals with specific genotype and genders
are needed. Animals typically ship between 10 and 14 weeks from the date of your order. If a second cryorecovery is needed in
order to provide the minimum number of animals, animals will ship within 25 weeks.
The genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation, or that discussed in the strain description. Please inquire about possible genotypes which will be recovered for this specific strain. The Jackson Laboratory cannot guarantee the reproductive success of mice shipped to your facility. If the mice are lost after the first three days (post-arrival) or do not produce progeny at your facility, a new order and fee will be necessary.
Cryorecovery to establish a Dedicated Supply for greater quantities of mice. Mice recovered can be used to establish a dedicated colony to contractually supply you mice according to your requirements. Price by quotation.
