Table 3 Quantitative ultrastructural analysis of CA1 synapses

From: Double deletion of the active zone proteins CAST/ELKS in the mouse forebrain causes high mortality of newborn pups

 ControlELKS cKO
Synapse density (per 100 μm2)37.3 ± 1.1238.7 ± 1.23
Presynaptic terminal area (nm2)0.177 ± 0.0170.190 ± 0.017
Size of active zone (nm)182.0 ± 3.22180.3 ± 6.82

  1. Images were obtained from the striatum radiatum of the hippocampal CA1 region. Data are presented as mean ± SEM, determined by the values from more than 100 synapses from each of 3 individual animals (control and ELKS cKO)
