N normal phenotype
• impaired motor learning in rotarod test
• decreased total distance travelled in open field test as compared to controls
• increased social dominance behavior as determined by tube test
• mice spend less time exploring center of open area test than controls
• mice spend less time in open arm during elevated zero maze test
• 8.7% of mice develop lesions from grooming between 4 and 6 months
• amount of time grooming is not significantly different than controls although a trend of increase is observed
• impaired acoustic startle response
• impaired motor coordination in rotarod test
• mice exhibit no preference for a stranger mouse or novel object in a test of voluntary social interaction

nervous system
• reduction in spine density of layer 2/3 pyramidal neurons in prefrontal cortex
• reduced striatal field pop spike amplitude in adults as compared to controls
• presynaptic function is not affected
• reduced NMDA receptor-mediated currents as compared to controls
• reduced mEPSC frequency in medium spiny neurons from adult mice as compared to controls
• small, but significant, reduction of mEPSC amplitude in medium spiny neurons from adult mice as compared to controls
• reduced mEPSC frequency in pyramidal neurons of prefrontal cortex in adult mice as compared to controls
• reduced mEPSC amplitude in prefrontal cortex in adult mice
• mEPSC frequency is increased in the prefrontal cortex at P14
• slightly impaired pulse inhibition (PPI)
