(Calhoun, et al. 2017) There are several different mouse models for Dravet syndrome, and researchers have shown that the same disease-causing mutation can present differently depending on which strain of mouse is used in breeding. This suggests there may be genetic modifiers that influence the severity of Dravet syndrome. The authors of this article had [...]
