The causative gene for the reeler mouse is reelin which encodes Reelin protein, an extracellular molecule. In the present study, we have examined the cytoarchitecture, myeloarchitecture, and afferent/efferent systems of the superior colliculus (SC) of the reeler mouse. In the reeler, the laminar structures of the superficial three layers of the SC were disorganized and intermingled into a single layer, i.e., the superficial fused layer (SuF), as previously reported in the reelin-deficient SRK… CONTINUE READING
