Altered transcription of specific complement pathway and pre- and postsynaptic proteins in APLP2-KO retina. a Schematic indicating the transcriptional alterations occurring in the pre- and postsynaptic gene network in the APLP2-KO retina. OPL synapse impairment was accompanied by specific change in synaptic gene expression showing enrichment () of genes important for presynaptic function/organization ─ RIBEYE, Bassoon, Munc13, Syntaxin1, SNAP25, Synaptogamin-1, Cav1.4, L1CAM, TRPM1, and impoverishment () of postsynaptic genes ─ mGluR6, Gα0 and PKCα. b Relative mRNA expression levels of differentially expressed genes determined by qRT-PCR and the calculated fold change in APLP2-KO retina relative WT. Mean ± s.e.m. N = 10 mice per genotype. *, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01 vs WT (t-test)
