phenotype observed in females
phenotype observed in males
N normal phenotype
mortality/aging
• mean age of death is 372 +/- 78 days

behavior/neurological
• mutants first show signs of hindlimb paraparesis and relatively symmetrical forelimb weakness (hemiparesis)

nervous system
• reactive gliosis in the spinal cord, predominantly in the lower spinal cord
• eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions are seen in the motor neurons that remain; inclusions resemble Lewy body-like hyaline inclusions, with the halo of inclusions composed of neurofilamentous structure and the core of granule-associated fibrils
• mean age of onset of motor neuron disease symptoms is 337 +/- 101 days
• loss of anterior horn cells in the spinal cord, predominantly in the lower spinal cord

muscle
• muscle atrophy is seen at the end stage of disease
• some mutants exhibit muscle cramps after exercise as a first symptom of disease
