BR5271 C. elegans byIs162. Show Description
byIs162 [rab-3p::F3(delta)K280 I277P I380P + myo-2p::mCherry]. Pan-neuronal over-expression of the F3 pro aggregation fragment of the human Tau protein with K280 deleted and two isoleucines to proline substitutions in the hexapeptide motifs of the repeat region (line A). These mutations abrogate the aggregation, making this strain an anti-aggregation control for BR5270. Reference: Fatuouros C, et al. Hum Mol Genet. 2012 Aug 15;21(16):3587-603.
BR5486 C. elegans byIs162; bkIs10. Show Description
byIs162 [rab-3p::F3(delta)K280(I277P)(I308P) + myo-2p::mCherry]. bkIs10 [aex-3p::h4R1NtauV337M + myo-2p::GFP]. Strain co-expressing the F3(delta)K280 anti-aggregation Tau fragment (with two I to P substitutions) and full-length Tau in all neurons. Red and green fluorescence in the pharynx due to the co-injection markers. The F3/2P fragment is not able to nucleate aggregation of full length Tau. bkIs10 contains an integrated transgene encoding the 1N4R isoforms of human tau with the 337M FTDP-17 mutation. Expression is driven by the pan-neuronal promoter aex-3. Over-expression of this transgene results in a pronounced Unc phenotype. Reference: Fatouros C, et al. Hum Mol Genet. 2012 Aug 15;21(16):3587-603.
