N normal phenotype
• once mice develop neurologic dysfunction, they deteriorate over 3-36 days until death

• ataxia and symptoms of rigidity develop between 7 and 39 weeks of age
• mice become lethargic between 7 and 39 weeks of age

nervous system
• mean age for when mutants develop neurologic dysfunction is 166 +/- 6 days; once affected, they deteriorate over 3-36 days until death
• however, amyloid plaques are not seen in the brain and brain homogenates from mutants are not infectious when injected into other mice or hamsters
• prominent Bergmann radial gliosis is seen in much of the molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex
• mild to moderate reactive astrocytic gliosis in a patchy distribution in both gray and white matter
• numerous vacuoles (spongiform degeneration) are present in both the gray and white matter of the cerebral hemispheres and brainstem
