Genetically Engineered "Down Syndrome" Mice

These mice can be assessed for mental retardation as well as problems that occur in the heart, gut, muscle, immune, and skeletal systems that occur in Down syndrome Description (Set) Proposed Use (Set) These mice can be used to test therapies for Down syndrome as well as investigate the underlying mechanisms that cause them.
