Mice with Shank3 Mutations Associated with ASD and Schizophrenia Display Both Shared and Distinct Defects

Abstract

Genetic studies have revealed significant overlaps of risk genes among psychiatric disorders. However, it is not clear how different mutations of the same gene contribute to different disorders. We characterized two lines of mutant mice with Shank3 mutations linked to ASD and schizophrenia. We found both shared and distinct synaptic and behavioral… (More)
