  • Tool name: Homozygous Mutant DISC1 (1001) mouse
  • Research fields: Drug development;Neurobiology
  • Tool sub type: Mouse
  • Disease: Schizophrenia and psychiatric illnesses
  • Model: Mutant
  • Description: This homozygous mouse strain (1001) carries mutant hDISC1 without gross developmental defects. In this strain, the expression of mutant hDISC1 is restricted to forebrain regions using TET-off system under the control of CAMKII. In addition, the expression can be suppressed by feeding the mice with doxycycline (DOX). These transgenic animals allow selective control of mutant hDISC1 expression in forebrain neurons and, herein provide a valuable research tool to study pathogenesis of schizophrenia and to conduct experimental therapeutics for the disease. This line is on a mixed background (B6; SJL; CBA).
  • Genetic background: B6; SJL; CBA
  • Zygosity: Homozygous
