Additional Information

RGD Curation Notes
Note Type Note Reference
strain_anatomy Perivascular aggregation of external granule cells (EGCs) is observed during postnatal cerebellar development. 1302460
strain_characteristics They have fused cerebellar hemisphere which leads to cerebellar vermis defects and dysplasia in the cerebellum. 1302460
strain_life_disease From 14 days of age they develop hind-leg paralysis leading to heriditary cerebellar vermis defect. 1553899
strain_life_disease Predicted to have truncated Unc5c protein that is expressed in the brain. 1302733
strain_other These are neurological mutant rats that are used as a model for the pathogenesis of cerebellar vermis defect (CVD) due to genetic insults. 1302460
