A View From the Bench: Roadblocks and Frustrations When Expectation Meets Reality.

In an effort to create better models for epilepsy, we’ve been working on a grant-funded project to humanize important synaptic machinery by replacing endogenous coding sequences with human coding sequences.  Syntaxin is a key synaptic protein, encoded by the gene STX1A, that helps synaptic vesicles dock, fuse with the membrane, and release neurotransmitters.  Syntaxin has …
