All mutations/alleles(10) : Targeted(10)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
In spite of impaired telomerase function, homozygous mutant mice are overtly normal in early generations. Impaired fertility has been reported in later generations for homozygotes of at least one knockout allele.
