Model Summary

C57BL6/J Taok2 HT and HM KO mice exhibit abnormal brain morphology, increased brain volume, reduced volume of somatosensory cortex, reduced cerebral cortex, abnormal morphology and size of the corpus callosum, increased ambulation, decreased anxiety, decreased social approach, decreased basal dendrite arborization in the PFC, abnormal spine morphology, decreased synapse number, decreased excitatory neurotransmission, and decreased RhoA activation (Richter M, et al, Mol. Psych., 2018).

M_TAOK2_1_KO_HM

Model Type: Genetic
Model Genotype: Homozygous

Mutation:

Taok2 homozygous knockout mice were generated through Cre mediated deletion of lox P sites within the first and seventh introns of the Taok2 gene. C57BL/6Jtyrc-2Jmice carry a recessive point mutation in the tyrosinase gene resulting in a white coat color, allowing the distinction of targeted cells that confer a black coat color. .
