Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Sen-ichi Oda, Nagoya University. Cacna1a<tg-rol> arose spontaneously in descendants of (SIII x C57BL/6)F1 in 1969.
Strain descriptionRolling mouse Nagoya, PROD-Cacna1a<tg-rol>/NemOdaRbrc. Cacna1a gene is a voltage-gated pore-forming membrane protein, mediates Ca2+ influx across presynaptic and somatodendritic membranes, thereby triggering fast neurotransmitter release and other key neuronal responses. Homozygous mutant mice exhibit a severe ataxia, episodic dyskinesia, and cerebellar atrophy.
Colony maintenanceHomozygous mutant mice are identifiable between 10 and 14 days old by a creeping or rolling gait.homozygous females are fertile but do not breed well.
