The stargazer mouse mutation causes absence seizures that are more prolonged and frequent than any other petit mal mouse model. Stargazer mice also have an ataxic gait and vestibular problems, including a distinctive head-tossing motion. From the genotyping of a large intersubspecific cross, a panel of 53 recombinant DNAs between D15Mit29 and D15Mit2 has been assembled, and a fine genetic map of the stargazer region has been constructed on mouse Chromosome 15. The stargazer locus has been… CONTINUE READING
