Objective: To investigate the roles of Mef2c in cerebellar Purkinje cells during the first three weeks of postnatal development.
Summary: Mef2c haploinsufficiency is implicated in behavioral deficits related to autism, schizophrenia, and intellectual disability. Results reveal the specific expression and functional relevance of Mef2c in developing Purkinje cells and offer insight to how disruption of the expression of Mef2c in a GABAergic neuronal subtype may lead to pathogenesis of cerebellar-associated disorders.
Dose: Immunohistochemistry – mouse anti-mGluR2 (1:1500)
