Model Summary

Mouse Nr2f1 gene is involved in both dorsal and ventral telencephalic development. Nr2f1 heterozygous mice show E/I imbalance of neurons in the primary somatosensory cortex, impaired social interaction, impaired social memory, repetitive self-grooming, anxiety, decreaded spatial memory, no change in motor coordination. Treatment with GinkgolideA in adult mice, restored sociability, social memory, ameliorated self-grooming, improved spatial memory, decreased anxiety, in the short but not long term.

Model Type: Genetic
Model Genotype: Heterozygous

Mutation:

Nr2f1 point mutant mice with the humanized R112K substitution ( Nr2f1^+/m) were generated by injecting female C57BL/6 mice with Cas9 mRNAs, sgRNA, and donor oligo. The R112K point mutation (GRCh38.p12;chr5:93585358G>A; c.335G>A; p.R112K) locates in the DNA-binding domain of Nr2f1. Nr2f1^+/m;Gad1-GFP reporter mutant mice were generated for histological analyses. Nr2f1 point mutant mice were generated through in vitro fertilization (IVF) by injecting the CRISPR components in superovulated mice, as well as through natural mating.

Model Type: RESCUE-Pharmaceutical
Model Genotype: Heterozygous

Mutation:

Nr2f1 mutant mice were orally gavaged with 2 mg/kg Ginkgolide A or vehicle (0.5% methylcellulose +0.2% tween 80) daily for 1 week, between ages 7 weeks and 8 weeks, and behaviors were tested at 8 weeks of age.
