Tottering and leaner mutations perturb transient developmental expression of tyrosine hydroxylase in embryologically distinct Purkinje cells.


The mouse mutants tottering and leaner exhibit neurologic disorders associated, in part, with global noradrenergic hyperinnervation. Therefore, the expression of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) mRNA and protein was examined in mutant and control mice. TH expression was normal in the major catecholaminergic nuclei. However, TH was expressed in vermal Purkinje… (More)
