Caption (A) 5 week old Fgfr3tm2Wei/Fgfr3+ (right) with littermate +/+ control (left) the Fgfr3tm2Wei/Fgfr3+ is easily distinguished by dwarfism, as well as a rounded head. (B) Growth curve of the Fgfr3tm2Wei/Fgfr3+ right) and wild-type littermate. (C) Showing the distortion of the brain in the Fgfr3tm2Wei/Fgfr3+ mouse. (D) Skeletal defects in the Fgfr3tm2Wei/Fgfr3+ (upper), arrow points to the craniocervical junction and thoracic kyphosis; arrowhead indicates the facial shortening and overgrowth of incisor teeth.
