phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(4) : Chemically induced (ENU)(1) Gene trapped(1) Spontaneous(1) Targeted(1)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit a lack of photoreceptor outer segments and rod and cone activity, reduced expression of several photoreceptor- and pineal-specific genes, and altered circadian behavior.
