N normal phenotype
• about 8% of mice die by 2 months of age

• at 3 to 5 months, 18 of 18 surviving mice developed multiple tumors (3 to 5 per mouse) compared to over 100 control mice who did not develop tumors at more than 1 year of age
• however, mice that died prior to 2 months of age did not have tumors and did not die from tumor-related causes
• small and potentially metastatic tumors are detected
• most tumors are located within the skeletal muscle in the limbs and intercostals regions with some non-skeletal muscle tissues (such as the cerebellum) harboring tumors
• tumors are vascularized, hemorrhagic and cystic spaces are detected in large tumors
• synovial sarcomas are detected with monophasic (13) outnumbering biphasic (3)
• myxoid and fibrous changes are observed

• myf5+ lineage cells undergo increased apoptosis ate E11.5 and by E15.5 are absent
• however, myf5+ cells near future rib cartilage and skeletal musculogenesis are normal

• about 8% of mice are born small
