Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy

animal models

 

In the last years we generated several transgenic mouse models by introduction of 4qter genomic fragments in the mouse genome. At this moment, a total of 17 transgenic lines are available, covering approximately 200 kb of 4qter. These lines are currently being studied for their phenotype and expression of the transgenes.
