alleles, and
phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(8) : Gene trapped(2) Targeted(5) Transgenic(1)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygous null mutants show 10X reduction in synaptic vesicle fusion and hypertonic sucrose-induced fusion and >100X reduction in fusion triggered by fast Ca2+. Newborn pups are rounded in appearance, with humped shoulders, and die immediately.
