Dr. Aamir Zuberi from the Jackson Laboratory recently presented Snyder-Robinson Syndrome (SRS) research at a Gordon Research Conference (GRC). His research, in collaboration with Maximiliano Presa, Matthew McKay, and Cathleen M. Lutz, focuses on two new SRS mouse models – the G56S point mutation and a conditional knockout involving a specific section of the Spermine Synthase (SMS) gene. The cKO model will allow researchers to study the impact of SMS deficiency in specific tissue(s) at a specific point in time.
