phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(8) : Gene trapped(2) Targeted(6)
Incidental mutations (data from APF )
 
Males hemizygous for a targeted null mutation show postnatal growth retardation, altered fat metabolism with severe hyperglycerolemia and increased free fatty acids, autonomous glucocorticoid synthesis and death by 4 days of age. Female heterozygotes show reduced free fatty acid and glucose levels.
