phenotypes
All alleles(13) : Targeted(4) Gene trapped(9)
 
Homozygous null mice display embryonic lethality during organogenesis with decreased embryo size, impaired labyrinth layer development and decreased number of trophoblast giant cells. Mice homozygous for another knock-out allele exhibit impaired function of intestinal tight junctions with lethality.
