We have recently developed a strategy to identify novel candidate genes for MCDs and to directly confirm their causative role in vivo.

Quantification of NMDAR Subunit Genes Expression by QRT-PCR Methods in Molecular Biology (Clifton, N.J.). | Pubmed ID: 28986866 Transcription is the initial and generally the most sensitive step to cellular needs and environmental cues. Thus, it serves as a major mechanism controlling gene expression. Using reverse-transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction technology (RT-qPCR), we will present how to quantify the transcriptional expression of NMDARs subunits during brain development and in both healthy and pathological conditions.
