Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Animals homozygous for this mutation exhibit partial embryonic lethality, growth retardation, crooked tail, abnormal vertebrae, small skull with occasional bent nose, absence of the third molars and small and/or unerupted lower incisors. Heterozygotes exhibit a crooked tail and abnormal vertebrae.
