New mammalian cellular models of OPMD

We generated mouse muscle cell lines that express either normal or OPMD-associated PABPN1 transgenes.

Contrasting to previous reports in the literature, we demonstrated that equivalent numbers of nuclear inclusions are formed in our PABPN1 wild-type and +7ala transfected cell lines, suggesting that it is merely the presence of the transgene that is the key to the formation of these structures.

This result was made public through a publication in a scientific journal.
