Severe and progressive neurotransmitter release aberrations in familial hemiplegic migraine type 1 Cacna1a S218L knock-in mice.


Familial hemiplegic migraine type 1 (FHM1) is caused by mutations in the CACNA1A gene, encoding neuronal presynaptic Ca(V)2.1 (P/Q-type) Ca(2+) channels. These channels mediate neurotransmitter release at many central synapses and at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ). Mutation S218L causes a severe neurological phenotype of FHM and, additionally, ataxia and… (More)
