behavior/neurological
• at 3 weeks, double mutants display an abnormal gait characterized by reduced flexibility of knee and ankle joints ("dragging hindlimb"); this phenotype is not observed in either single mutant

immune system
• double mutants display a severe premature osteoarthritis and are significantly more affected than wild-type and single mutants at 3 and 9 months
