TK CTA in 14-3-3 Transgenics

From MagnetoWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Test of CTA in transgenic mice that overexpress R18 peptide, which blocks the ability of 14-3-3 to bind other proteins. Zhou's founder Line 132.

Continued in experiment TL Stronger CTA in 14-3-3 Transgenics and TM Stronger NaCl CTA in 14-3-3 Transgenics and TN Unconditioned Aversions in 14-3-3 Transgenics.
