homeostasis/metabolism
• treatment with angiotensin II and aldosterone reduces macrophage invasion where as it increases macrophage invasion in wild-type mice
• tubulointerstitial damage and fibrosis induction are less than in wild-type mice following kidney obstruction

Abnormal vascular development in Tgfb1tm1Jmu/Tgfb1tm1Jmu mice and fewer Langerhans cells in Tgfb1tm1Jmu/Tgfb1tm1Jmu and Itgb6tm1Des/Itgb6tm1Des mice

immune system
• Langerhans cells are less abundant in back epidermis
• Langerhans cells are absent from ear epidermis
• mild inflammation occurs in the lung and skin

hematopoietic system
• Langerhans cells are less abundant in back epidermis
• Langerhans cells are absent from ear epidermis

Juvenile baldness in Itgb6tm1Des/Itgb6tm1Des mice

respiratory system
• mice exhibit increased airway responsiveness to acetylcholine
• mononuclear cells consisting of a mixed lymphocyte infiltrate are present in the lung epithelium
• however, mice do not display any overt signs of lung infection

immune system
• mice exhibit increased airway responsiveness to acetylcholine

integument
• mice fail to develop hair on the tops of their heads, the backs of their necks and the inner surface of their thighs
• however, by 20 to 30 days hair growth on the head and neck resumes
• degenerating follicle cells are surrounded by mononuclear cells consisting of a macrophage infiltrate
• mixed cellular infiltration of dermis, macrophages; mixed cellular infiltration of airway walls, mixed lymphocytes
