Neural information processed through the striatum of the basal ganglia is crucial for sensorimotor and psychomotor functions. Genes that are highly expressed in the striatum during development may be involved in neural development and plasticity in the striatum. We report in the present study the identification of a previously uncharacterized mammalian member of the nocA/elB/tlp-1 family, Nolz-1, that is preferentially expressed at high levels in the developing striatum. Nolz-1 mRNA was… CONTINUE READING
