Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Embryos homozygous for a knock-out mutation are severely growth retarded and die around E8.5. Interestingly, heterozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile, develop normally and do not exhibit impaired insulin action or glucose tolerance even when challenged with a high-fat diet.
