Alleles
and
phenotypes
All alleles(16) : Targeted(12)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygotes for null or hypomorphic alleles do not respond to cyclic compounds (e.g., dioxin) and are resistant to their teratogenic effects. Depending on the allele, null mutants may also have liver defects, impaired female fertility, neonatal or postnatal lethality, and spleen abnormalities.
