Human iPSC-Derived Neural Stem Cells that have been genetically edited using CRISPR-Cas9 technology to introduce the V337M mutation (GTG>ATG) in the MAPT gene. This line is heterozygous for the V337M mutation where 1 allele has the mutation and the other allele is wild type. Click on the product images to see the data and further details.
The V337M mutation in MAPT has been implicated in frontotemporal dementia and may have a role in Alzheimer's disease. The mutation leads to accelerated aggregation of MAPT/tau protein into filament structures (Nacharaju et al., 1999) and makes the MAPT/tau protein more susceptible to hyperphosphorylation (Alonso et al., 2004).
