Microarray analysis revealed that changes in genes expressions are brain region-dependent; expression of several genes are affected by point mutation L100P, which was verified by RT-PCR (Lcn2, Cyr61, Slc6a12, Slc40a1, Egr2), a few genes are affected by genotype and valproate (Dusp1 and Purb), suggesting their role in valproate-induced benificial effect on sensorimotor gaiting in Disc1-L100P mutant mice. The final conclusion will be drawn after series of RT-PCR confirmation.
