Full text not available from this repository.
The amyloid precursor protein (beta APP) gene of the mouse was disrupted by homologous recombination; however, contrary to expectation, brain and other tissues still contained beta APP-specific RNA, albeit at a level 5-10 fold lower than wild-type and lacking the disrupted exon, which had been spliced out. The brain contained shortened beta APP-specific protein at a low level. Mutant mice were severely impaired in spatial learning and exploratory behavior and showed increased incidence of agenesis of the corpus callosum.
