P0 (first 24 hrs after birth)

Data Collection

Time After Injection
1 month to 6 months
Detection Method
Immunohistochemistry, Direct fluorescence
Expression Site
Neurons in forebrain- cortex, hippocampus, some mid brain
Genetic Tool Outcome
The GCaMP6 activated spontaneously in some neurons, suggesting it worked effectively. The mRuby was visible in cell bodies and neurites, marking transduced cells
Other Information
No evidence of toxicity or other adverse effects. Expression persisted through life of animal, up to at least 16 months
