The Lundquist Institute’s investigators have developed a critically needed mouse model of Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T), a currently untreatable, rare childhood disorder that results in a severe and progressive loss of motor coordination and premature death by 30 years of age. The disorder is caused by recessive genetic mutations in the A-T mutated (ATM) gene that prevent the production of an important DNA repair pathway protein referred to as ATM.
