behavior/neurological
• by 10 months of age mutants have impaired performance in a novel object recognition test
• by 10 months of age some mutants show increased activity in an open field test

cellular
• a dramatic increase in apoptosis is seen in the degenerating forebrain

growth/size/body
• by 10 months of age mutant mice start to show reduced body weights compared to wild-type

nervous system
• the lateral ventricles are immensely enlarged compared to wild-type or single knockout mice
• the third ventricle is immensely enlarged compared to wild-type or single knockout mice
• the thickness of the corpus callosum is about a third that of controls
• the thickness of the molecular layers between the CA1 pyramidal cells and dentate gyrus is significantly reduced
• the cortex is about half the normal thickness and the 6 layers can no longer be distinguished
• increased Gfap expression indicates that reactive astrogliosis occurs along with forebrain degeneration
• changes in the expression of several markers indicate that neuronal atrophy occurs along with forebrain degeneration
• degeneration is seen in the forebrain
