phenotype observed in females
phenotype observed in males
N normal phenotype
• progressive impairment in the forelimb extension test beginning around the age of 13 weeks and severe loss of vision at the average age of 21 weeks

nervous system
• accumulation of autofluorescent storage material throughout the brain at 6 months of age, including in the cortical mantle of the cerebral cortex, cortical neurons, the CA2 region of the hippocampus and the retina
• presence of inclusion bodies in neurons of the cerebral cortex and thalamus region, that contained a mixture of lamellar bodies
• 6 month old mutants showed a loss of GABAergic interneurons in the deeper cortical layers of the cerebral cortex, the entorhinal cortex, hippocampus, thalamic nuclei, midbrain, and in the Purkinje cell layer of the cerebellum
