All mutations/alleles(8) : Gene trapped(2) Targeted(6)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit reduced ethanol self-administration and are more sensitive to the acute behavioral effects of ethanol and other drugs that activate GABA(A) receptors. Mutants show reduced anxiety and stress hormones.
Prkce interacts with 376 markers (Mir1a-1, Mir1a-2, Mir9-1, ...)
