Mice with a mutation in fyn genes were examined for their susceptibility to acoustically primed audiogenic seizures. Homozygous mutant ( fynz fynz) mice were significantly more likely to have seizures and to show the stronger seizure syndrome (clonus). These results indicate that the susceptibility of acoustically primed audiogenic seizures is enhanced in the Fyn kinase deficient mice.
