phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(6) : Chemically induced (ENU)(2) Gene trapped(3) Targeted(1)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygous mutants exhibit microphthalmia, total lens opacity, disorganized lens fibers, posterior rupturing of lens capsule, and some have vacuolated lens. Heterozygotes exhibit the same dense cataract, but without microphthalmia or lens rupture.
