Mouse AD Panel


Reproducibly translate mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) to human disease with 770 standardized genes covering 30 clinically derived AD-associated modules discovered in the AMP-AD consortium study of human brain tissue. Reliably assay AD phenotypes and disease progression in mouse model development. Perform in vivo screening of potential therapeutics with an efficient workflow to potentially reduce the time to clinic.

† Annotations for 23 fundamental pathways and processes were assigned across all genes in the Mouse AD panel allowing for an additional view of important aspects of the onset and progression of neurodegenerative disease. Pathways and processes with >60% representative gene content per module are listed above. Additional annotations can be found in the complete gene list.

‡ <60% representative pathway and process gene content per module

* Genes selected based on human-mouse gene homology, maximal coverage of AMP-AD modules, top AGORA candidate gene status (, representation in AMP-AD module eigengenes, and expression in mouse brain.
