phenotype observed in females
phenotype observed in males
N normal phenotype
• in 9 of 73 mice develop overt permanent motor disability, ataxia or both
• in 9 of 73 mice, 3 of which show staggering ataxic gait
• of one or more limb in 8 of 9 mice with motor disabilities

cardiovascular system
• mice exhibit normal vascular smooth muscle cell remodeling or growth and normal cerebral capillary densities
• mice exhibit arteriopathy with granular osminophilic material deposits in the basal lamina of the arterial smooth muscle cells and surrounding matrix in brain and tail arteries

nervous system
• micro-bleeds, hemosiderin deposits or hemosiderin-containing macrophages, perivascular inflammatory infiltration, gliosis, thrombosis, perivascular fibrin(ogen) deposition, microinfarctions characterized by foci with pallor and cell loss around small cystic cavities, and enlargement of the Virchow-Robin spaces creating perivascular lacunae
• in some mice

• in the brain vasculature of some mice
