Decreased (45)Ca(2)(+) uptake in P/Q-type calcium channels in homozygous lethargic (Cacnb4lh) mice is associated with increased beta3 and decreased beta4 calcium channel subunit mRNA expression

The mutated gene in the lethargic (Cacnb4lh) mouse model of absence seizures encodes the beta4 subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs), leading to decreased mRNA expression of a beta4 subunit that is truncated and cannot bind to alpha 1 subunits of VGCCs. In this study we accomplished two goals.
