phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(6) : Gene trapped(2) Targeted(4)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Spermatogenesis is blocked in homozygous mutant mice, resulting in male infertility. Female mutant mice are fertile and do not exhibit any obvious reproductive defects.
 
Interactions
Ddx4 interacts with 164 markers (Mir7-2, Mir7b, Mir17, ...)
