(J:13124)
(J:14983)
• approximately 1/4 of animals are lost due to early lethality

craniofacial
• interfrontal bone is often present and the skull is slightly wider than normal
• variable penetrance (J:5776)
(J:63168)

growth/size/body
• in the most severely affected animals
• abnormal organ position, found in more than 50% of Bn/Y males and 38% of carrier females

limbs/digits/tail
• fewer and smaller caudal vertebrae than normal; more severe than heterozygous female
