Abstract

Proteinopathies are a family of neurodegenerative disorders that are neuropathologically characterized by the abnormal intracellular and/or extracellular aggregation of one or more proteins. These diseases can be further subdivided based on the specific protein aggregates formed. In this chapter, we focus on the mouse lines that have been generated to model four major families of proteinopathies termed the tauopathies, amyloidosis, synucleinopathies, and TDP-43 proteinopathies.
