mortality/aging
• most (22 out of 24) of the homozygous mutants die within 30 days of birth with none surviving beyond P139
• the average lifespan for homozygous mutants is 9 - 10 days longer than that of Ercc5tm1Shm homozygotes

digestive/alimentary system
• undeveloped small intestines are seen in homozygous mutants

growth/size/body
• all homozygous mice exhibit growth failure
• the average body weight for homozygous mutants is slightly greater than that of Ercc5tm1Shm homozygotes

homeostasis/metabolism
• cells from homozygous mutants are more sensitive to UV light than cells from wild-type mice and as sensitive as cells from Ercc5tm1Shm
• UV induced DNA lesions are not removed in homozygous mutant cell

integument
• cells from homozygous mutants are more sensitive to UV light than cells from wild-type mice and as sensitive as cells from Ercc5tm1Shm
• UV induced DNA lesions are not removed in homozygous mutant cell
