Validation that AAV viruses harboring Homer1a or GFP transgenes function as intended. a Viral genome maps for viruses designed to express Homer1a and GFP. b Representative picture showing GFP infection in the BLA of a naïve animal. c Western blot picture depicting HA tagged Homer1a transgene expression at ~30 kDa which is absent in the GFP animals. A separate band at ~27 kDa shows endogenous Homer1a which is present in both Homer1a and GFP virus-infused groups as expected. d A timeline showing the sequence of surgeries and experiments
