Behavioral phenotyping of transgenic and knockout mice: practical concerns and potential pitfalls.

TLDR
Strategies aimed at minimizing environmental variability and contributions of background genes will enhance the robustness of mouse behavioral phenotyping assays.

TLDR
A general approach is designed to describe a general approach, which increases reliability of behavioral screening, and provides an overview on a selection of specific procedures suitable for but not limited to behavioral screening in pharmacology and toxicology.

Reliability, robustness, and reproducibility in mouse behavioral phenotyping: a cross-laboratory study.

TLDR
The EUMORPHIA SOPs described here are an important start-point for the ongoing development of increasingly robust phenotyping platforms and their application in large-scale, multicentre mouse phenotypes programs.

A Simple and Fast Battery Test for Phenotypic Characterization of Mice.

TLDR
The battery test proposed is to settle a specific methodology to characterize the phenotype of neurological disease models in mutant or genetically modified mice, which is simple and efficient in order to analyze several parameters, including general activity, sensory nervous system, sensorimotor system, central nervous system and autonomous nervous system.

Behavioral profiles of inbred strains on novel olfactory, spatial and emotional tests for reference memory in mice

TLDR
Comparison of strains for open field exploratory activity and anxiety‐like behavior suggests that poor Barnes maze performance reflects low exploratory behavior, rather than a true spatial memory deficit, in 129S6 mice.

Behavioral characterization of dopamine D5 receptor null mutant mice.

TLDR
The results suggest that the D5 receptor is not essential for many dopamine-mediated behaviors but may contribute to the pharmacological activation of dopaminergic pathways relevant to exploratory locomotion, startle, and prepulse inhibition.

Behavioral phenotypes of inbred mouse strains: implications and recommendations for molecular studies

TLDR
Strain distributions are described for open field activity, learning and memory tasks, aggression, sexual and parental behaviors, acoustic startle and prepulse inhibition, and the behavioral actions of ethanol, nicotine, cocaine, opiates, antipsychotics, and anxiolytics.

Behavior in Mice with Targeted Disruption of Single Genes

A Proposed Test Battery and Constellations of Specific Behavioral Paradigms to Investigate the Behavioral Phenotypes of Transgenic and Knockout Mice

TLDR
A series of neurological and neuropsychological tests which are effectively used as a first screen for behavioral abnormalities in mutant mice are described, and a series of specific behavioral paradigms, clustered by category, are described.

Genetic analysis of anxiety-related behaviors and responses to benzodiazepine-related drugs in AXB and BXA recombinant inbred mouse strains

TLDR
The strain distribution patterns and estimates of the minimal number of loci obtained for each trait suggest that multiple chromosomal loci contribute to differences in anxiety-related behavioral phenotypes and the behavioral responses to diazepam and β-CCM between C57BL/6J and A/J mice.

Learning impairment in transgenic mice with central overexpression of corticotropin-releasing factor

Alpha7 nicotinic receptor subunits are not necessary for hippocampal-dependent learning or sensorimotor gating: a behavioral characterization of Acra7-deficient mice.

TLDR
The results of this study show that the absence of alpha7 nAChRs has little impact on normal, base-line behavioral responses, and future studies will examine the contribution ofalpha7nAChR to the enhancement of learning and sensorimotor gating following nicotine treatments.

Hyperactivity and learning deficits in transgenic mice bearing a human mutant thyroid hormone beta1 receptor gene.

TLDR
Results indicate that transgenic mice bearing a mutant human TRbeta gene demonstrate several behavioral characteristics of ADHD and may serve a valuable heuristic role in elucidating possible candidate genes in converging pathways for other causes of ADHD.

Characterization of benzodiazepine-sensitive behaviors in the A/J and C57BL/6J inbred strains of mice

TLDR
C57BL/6J and A/J mice should be useful parental strains in recombinant inbred lines for investigating the genetic determinants of benzodiazepine-sensitive behaviors and sensitivity to drugs acting on the GABAA/benzodiazepines receptor complex.

Inbred strain differences in prepulse inhibition of the mouse startle response

TLDR
Inbred strains of mice may be a useful tool to study the genetic basis of sensorimotor gating and display high levels of prepulse inhibition of both the acoustic and tactile startle responses.
