phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(108) : Gene trapped(105) Targeted(3)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Male homozygotes for targeted null mutations exhibit small testes but are fertile. Mutant kidneys have fewer glomeruli and dilated renal tubules, but function normally. Mice homozygous for a gene trap allele exhibit open eyelids at birth.
