Major brain anatomy and the sensory network were normal in CAST/ELKS dKO pups. a Hematoxylin and eosin staining of P0–1 pup parasagittal whole-brains showed ELKS depletion in CAST KO mice had no conspicuous effect on brain anatomy development in the olfactory bulb (OB), cortex (Cx), hippocampus (Hipo), thalamus (Th), and cerebellum (Cb). b Cytochrome oxidase histochemistry at the spinal trigeminal nucleus of control (CAST HT; ELKS flox) and CAST/ELKS dKO (CAST KO; ELKS flox; CaMKII Cre+). Distinct patches, corresponding to the whiskers were present in both groups of mice
