Masking in waved-2 mice: EGF receptor control of locomotion questioned.


It has been suggested that epidermal growth factors (EGF) are responsible for the inhibition of locomotion by light (i.e., masking) in nocturnal rodents (Kramer et al., 2001). The poor masking response of waved-2 (Egfr(wa2)) mutant mice, with reduced EGF receptor activity, was adduced in support of this idea. In the present work, we studied the responses to… (More)
