Mutations,
alleles, and
phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(6) : Gene trapped(1) Targeted(5)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF , CvDC )
 
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit hippocampal neurons with reduced sensitivity to kainate and reduced susceptibility to the seizure-inducing effects of kainate administration.
 
Interactions
