Mouse Gene Set: STARK_BRAIN_22Q11_DELETION

For the Human gene set with the same name, see STARK_BRAIN_22Q11_DELETION

Standard name STARK_BRAIN_22Q11_DELETION
Systematic name MM584
Brief description Genes located outside the microdeletion region in 22q11 which were differentially expressed in the same manner both in hyppocampus and prefrontal cortex.
Full description or abstract Individuals with 22q11.2 microdeletions show behavioral and cognitive deficits and are at high risk of developing schizophrenia. We analyzed an engineered mouse strain carrying a chromosomal deficiency spanning a segment syntenic to the human 22q11.2 locus. We uncovered a previously unknown alteration in the biogenesis of microRNAs (miRNAs) and identified a subset of brain miRNAs affected by the microdeletion. We provide evidence that the abnormal miRNA biogenesis emerges because of haploinsufficiency of the Dgcr8 gene, which encodes an RNA-binding moiety of the 'microprocessor' complex and contributes to the behavioral and neuronal deficits associated with the 22q11.2 microdeletion.
