Transgenic mice on an FVB background appear normal at birth, but begin to show skin abnormalities at about 6 days of age. Inflammatory lesions develop by 2-3 weeks of age. The skin condition progressively worsens and is characterized by hair loss, flaky skin, and nail abnormalities. As the transgene inserted into the Y Chromosome, only males are affected.
