mortality/aging
• Background Sensitivity: mean age at death is ~200 days (J:68981)
• Background Sensitivity: mean age at death is ~200 days (J:68981)

tumorigenesis
• all animals at time of death/sacrifice have extensive tumor burden (J:68981)
• mice display a more rapid tumor phenotype than Krastm2Tyj heterozygotes (J:68981)
• all animals at time of death/sacrifice have extensive tumor burden (J:68981)
• mice display a more rapid tumor phenotype than Krastm2Tyj heterozygotes (J:68981)
• Background Sensitivity: animals are prone to skin papillomas (seen in ~20% of animals); tumors typically arising on ears and snout are predominantly pedunculated and show limited tendency to progress to squamous cell carcinoma (J:68981)
• Background Sensitivity: animals are prone to skin papillomas (seen in ~20% of animals); tumors typically arising on ears and snout are predominantly pedunculated and show limited tendency to progress to squamous cell carcinoma (J:68981)
• Background Sensitivity: animals are prone to thymic lymphomas (seen in ~40% of animals) (J:68981)
• Background Sensitivity: animals are prone to thymic lymphomas (seen in ~40% of animals) (J:68981)
• 100% of animals show multifocal tumors at time of death/sacrifice (J:68981)
• tumors are detectable at 1 week of age as small pleural nodules; multiplicity and size of tumors increases with age, and ultimately result in respiratory distress and death (J:68981)
• tumors range from mild hyperplasia/dysplasia to overt carcinoma; small lesions consist of hyperplastic alveolar epithelium (J:68981)
• in older mice, infrequent metastases to thoracic lymph nodes, the kidney and other visceral organs (J:68981)

• in older mice, infrequent metastases to thoracic lymph nodes, the kidney and other visceral organs (J:68981)
• as lesions enlarge, they form small alveolar adenomas; some show areas of glandular differentiation (J:68981)
• as lesions enlarge, they form small alveolar adenomas; some show areas of glandular differentiation (J:68981)
• 5-10% of tumors have features of well-differentiated human papillary adenocarcinoma (J:68981)

digestive/alimentary system
