Found among the descendants of irradiated mice (J:14847). Effects are variable, and penetrance is incomplete. This mutant has been the subject of a large number of investigations reviewed by Gr"uneberg (J:30758). The genetics and development were reinvestigated by Carter (J:221, J:13050) who concluded that the effects of this mutation include: embryonic subepidermal blebs leading to abnormalities of the eyes, skin, and hair, and clubbing of the feet; split sternum, pseudencephaly, acrania, renal agenesis, preaxial polydactyly, and syndactyly of the middle digits; and probably also hydronephrosis, ectopia viscerum, and midcerebral lesions.
