  1. The targeting vector was constructed with three DNA fragments (5', middle, and 3') derived from mouse APP gene. The three fragments were produced by PCR using the primer pairs of TV-Am-5'-F/R, TV-Am-M-F/R, and TV-Am-3'-F/R, respectively. Underlines indicate restriction sites. ΔTTC represents a deletion of codon693 (GAA). Southern blot hybridization was carried out with 5' and 3' probes that were prepared by PCR using the primer pairs of Am-5' probe F/R and Am-3' probe F/R, respectively. Genotyping of mice was performed by PCR using the three primer mixtures. The KI reverse primer was in the neomycin-resistance gene. Wild-type allele produced a 780 bp PCR product with the primer pair of KI/WT forward and WT reverse, while KI allele showed an 1820 bp PCR product with the primer pair of KI/WT forward and KI reverse
