The taiep mutant rat was first described in a colony of Sprague-Dawley rats at the University of Puebla in 1989, with an autosomal recessive inherited pattern. taiep is an acronym for the progressive neurologic deficits that the rat develops, i.e., t = trembling (3–4 weeks), a = ataxia (at 4 months), i = immobility (5–6 months), e = epilepsy (5–6 months), and p = paresis (7 months onwards). Thus, mutant rats are first identified by a tremor at 3–4 weeks of age that is followed by a progressive… CONTINUE READING
