Mutations,
alleles, and
phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(4) : Targeted(4)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Mutants with targeted disruptions of this gene have fragile epidermis, flaky skin, and defects in the epidermal barrier, leading to chronic dermatitis and display abnormal epidermal differentiation as indicated by hyperproliferation and overxpression of keratin 6 and 16.
