Mutations,
alleles, and
phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(2) : Targeted(2)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation are small, lean, hyperactive, hypermetabolic, and infertile. Mutants exhibit markedly reduced leptin levels and altered hypothalamic proopiomelanocortin, neuropeptide Y, and agouti-related peptide expression.
 
Interactions
Vgf interacts with 66 markers (Mir27a, Mir27b, Mir30c-1, ...)
