nervous system
• while evoked compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) are always single responses in controls, single nerve stimuli result in repetitive CMAPs in mutants; in about half the mice a total of three action potentials are seen
• mice show increased sensitivity to the neuromuscular blocker curare, developing marked decremental responses to repetitive stimulation at both 5 and 10 Hz compared to controls which show an average decrement of less than 1%
• the mean time constant of decay of end-plate currents (EPCs) evoked by phrenic nerve stimulation is about 3-fold prolonged compared to controls
• miniature end-plate currents (MEPCs) have prolonged decay phases
• a greater proportion (25% vs 6%) of MEPCs have bi-exponential decays than in controls indicating increased duration of synaptic currents
• the mean MEPC amplitudes are reduced by a mean of 33%

muscle
N
• muscle fibers, end-plates, nerve terminals and terminal arbors appear normal
