Nullizygous embryos show delayed growth and lethality, impaired gastrulation, abnormal primitive streak and mesoderm formation, ectoderm apoptosis, and extraembryonic tissue dysplasia. Mice expressing only the alpha1 isoform show glucose intolerance whereas mice expressing alpha7 show dyslipidemia.
