mortality/aging
• most null mice with craniofacial malformations die shortly after birth (J:77779)
• mice with less severe craniofacial defects survive longer (J:77779)
• most null mice with craniofacial malformations die shortly after birth (J:77779)

craniofacial
• null mice sometimes exhibit cleft nose and palate (J:77779)
• null mice sometimes exhibit cleft nose and palate (J:77779)

nervous system
• 17% of null mice display neural tube defects caused by the failure of the neural folds to fuse in the dorsal midline (J:77779)
• 17% of null mice display neural tube defects caused by the failure of the neural folds to fuse in the dorsal midline (J:77779)
• failure to close the cranial neural tube (J:77779)
• although the neural folds become juxtaposed in the dorsal midline, they fail to fuse in some embryos and continued cell proliferation leads to eversion of the neural folds (J:77779)
