phenotype observed in females
phenotype observed in males
N normal phenotype
behavior/neurological
• mice spend less time in the light chamber for the light-dark transition test, in the open arms for the elevated plus-maze test, and in the center of the open-field indicating increased anxiety
• mice show a lower acoustic startle response
• mice show reduced number of social contacts in the social-interaction test but an increase in the duration per contact, resulting in an increase in total contact time
• however, the total duration of active contacts such as sniffing and following behavior is reduced

digestive/alimentary system
• mice have shorter intestine
• mice tend to show slower intestinal transit

growth/size/body
• brain weight and volume are increased indicating macrocephaly

nervous system
• brain weight is increased at E18.5
• mice exhibit increased prepulse inhibition for 74- or 78-dB prepulses before a 120-dB startle stimulus
