N normal phenotype
endocrine/exocrine glands
• altered thyroid structure with normal areas that include colloid-filled follicles and normal areas with focal hyperplasia, polynuclear cells, small nonencapsulated areas of hypercellularity with solid and/or mircofollicular patterns and internal hemorrhage
• 100% of mutants develop differentiated follicular tumors of the thyroid after about 2 years of age

homeostasis/metabolism
• P14 mutants show a mild decrease of T4 but normal TSH

neoplasm
• 100% of mutants develop differentiated follicular tumors of the thyroid after about 2 years of age
