These paradigms measured different sensory, motor, and autonomic abnormalities of relevance to Rett syndrome, including motor coordination and balance; gait abnormalities; hindlimb clasping, a model of the characteristic hand stereotypies in individuals with Rett syndrome; acoustic startle response; and, in older animals, visual acuity and breathing abnormalities.
Creative Biolabs can provide different kinds of SCI based on clients' needs and multiple assessments including motor-evoked potential (MEP), somatosensory-evoked potential (SSEP), MR imaging, and monkey hindlimb score (MHS), etc.
Twelve linear morphometric traits were measured with a digital calliper to a resolution of one millimetre: 1: snout-vent length (SVL), from the tip of the snout to the rear margin of the cloaca; 2: head length, from the tip of the snout to the gular fold; 3: maximum head width; 4: head width between the eye orbits; 5: head width at the gular fold; 6: maximum head height; 7: interorbital distance, equivalent to the minimum distance between the eyes; 8: forelimb length from the point of insertion to the tip of the longest finger; 9: hindlimb length from the point of insertion to the tip of the longest toe; 10: axilla-to-groin length; 11: tail length; and 12: trunk length, calculated as SVL minus head length.
