Transgenic mouse model of human tauopathy.
The line expresses human 0N4R Tau with a P301S mutation under the control of the murine Thy1 promoter. The P301S mutation causes a dominantly inherited tauopathy in humans. The transgenic mouse model recapitulates many hallmarks of tauopathy, including tau hyperphosphorylation, tau filament formation and neurodegeneration in brain and spinal cord.
