|Olfactory stem cells reveal MOCOS as a new player in autism spectrum disorders|
To this end, we evaluated the synaptic transmission at the neuromuscular junction by monitoring the sensitivity of mocs-1 mutants to the paralyzing effects of aldicarb, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. We found that tm3708 and ok3439 animals were ...
