Consensus statement: chromosomal microarray is a first-tier clinical diagnostic test for individuals with developmental disabilities or congenital anomalies.
Chromosomal microarray (CMA) is increasingly utilized for genetic testing of individuals with unexplained developmental delay/intellectual disability (DD/ID), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), orExpand

Ts1Cje, a partial trisomy 16 mouse model for Down syndrome, exhibits learning and behavioral abnormalities.
A mouse model for Down syndrome, Ts1Cje, has been developed. This model has made possible a step in the genetic dissection of the learning, behavioral, and neurological abnormalities associated withExpand

Developmental abnormalities and age-related neurodegeneration in a mouse model of Down syndrome.
To study the pathogenesis of central nervous system abnormalities in Down syndrome (DS), we have analyzed a new genetic model of DS, the partial trisomy 16 (Ts65Dn) mouse. Ts65Dn mice have an extraExpand

Dilated cardiomyopathy and neonatal lethality in mutant mice lacking manganese superoxide dismutase
The Sod2 gene for Mn–superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), an intramitochondrial free radical scavenging enzyme that is the first line of defense against superoxide produced as a byproduct of oxidativeExpand

Hippocampal Long-Term Potentiation Suppressed by Increased Inhibition in the Ts65Dn Mouse, a Genetic Model of Down Syndrome
Although many genetic disorders are characterized by cognitive failure during development, there is little insight into the neurobiological basis for the abnormalities. Down syndrome (DS), a disorderExpand

CuZnSOD deficiency leads to persistent and widespread oxidative damage and hepatocarcinogenesis later in life
Mice deficient in CuZn superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD) showed no overt abnormalities during development and early adulthood, but had a reduced lifespan and increased incidence of neoplastic changes inExpand

Failed retrograde transport of NGF in a mouse model of Down's syndrome: Reversal of cholinergic neurodegenerative phenotypes following NGF infusion
Age-related degeneration of basal forebrain cholinergic neurons (BFCNs) contributes to cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease and Down's syndrome. With aging, the partial trisomy 16 (Ts65Dn) mouseExpand

Altered surfactant homeostasis and alveolar type II cell morphology in mice lacking surfactant protein D.
Surfactant protein D (SP-D) is one of two collectins found in the pulmonary alveolus. On the basis of homology with other collectins, potential functions for SP-D include roles in innate immunity andExpand

Defective Secretion of Saliva in Transgenic Mice Lacking Aquaporin-5 Water Channels*
Aquaporin-5 (AQP5) is a water-selective transporting protein expressed in epithelial cells of serous acini in salivary gland. We generated AQP5 null mice by targeted gene disruption. The genotypeExpand

Increased Oxidative Damage Is Correlated to Altered Mitochondrial Function in Heterozygous Manganese Superoxide Dismutase Knockout Mice*
This study characterizes mitochondria isolated from livers of Sod2 −/+ andSod2 +/+ mice. A 50% decrease in manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) activity was observed in mitochondria isolated fromExpand
