phenotype observed in males
N normal phenotype
homeostasis/metabolism
• taurine concentrations were decreased by ~74% in the kidney, liver, and eye
• taurine concentrations were decreased by >95% in skeletal and heart muscle
• plasma taurine concentrations were decreased by >74%

reproductive system
• male mice were fertile

vision/eye
• advanced stages of photoreceptor degeneration observed at 1 to 2 months of age
• at 2 weeks of age, the outer nuclear layer was largely intact, the inner photoreceptor segments were much smaller than those of wild-type
• progressive degeneration of outer nuclear layer thickness from postnatal day 14 through 6 weeks of age
• only residual electrical activity detected by electroretinogragy (ERG) between 2 and 4 weeks of age
• no ERG signal detected at 6 weeks of age

nervous system
• advanced stages of photoreceptor degeneration observed at 1 to 2 months of age
