N normal phenotype
mortality/aging
• mice have reduced lifespans relative to wild-type; mice start to die at 11.5 weeks of age

growth/size/body
• symptomatic mice are visibly smaller than normal littermates at 4 months
• mice stop gaining weight at 10 weeks of age, then show a rapid decline in weight after this point

behavior/neurological
• symptomatic mice can be distinguished from normal littermates at 4 months of age by poorly groomed appearance
• displayed by some mice
• displayed by some mice
• mice perform poorly on a non-accelerating rotating rod at 6 weeks of age, and do not show any subsequent improvement
• some mice exhibit spontaneous seizures

nervous system
• some mice exhibit spontaneous seizures
• gliosis is observed in granular and Purkinje cell layers of cerebellum
• TBP-71Q is relatively diffuse in neuronal nuclei in the brain
• degenerating Purkinje cells are evident in cerebellum
• loss or disruption of calbindin-positive neurites in cerebellar molecular layer is observed in mutants
• degenerating axons are evident in cerebellum; axons with reduced internal space surrounded by a distorted or thickened myelin sheath, presence of myelin ovoids, or vacuolated axons without distinguishable organelles or disintegrating myelin sheaths are indicative of more severe degeneration
