Rats exposed to the DNA methylating agent methylazoxymethanol (MAM) on E17 show deficits as adults that model some of the neuropathological and behavioral changes observed in schizophrenia. It is presently unknown whether these changes generalize to other antimitotic agents administered later in development. Here we show that exposure to the antimitotic agent Ara-C between E19.5 and E20.5 recapitulates some of the changes observed in MAM-treated animals and in patients with schizophrenia.
