Mutations,
alleles, and
phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(5) : Chemically induced (other)(1) Targeted(4)
Incidental mutations (data from APF )
 
Homozygous null mice display male and female infertility, failure of meiosis, azoospermia, and absence of oocytes and ovarian follicles. Mice homozygous for a targeted allele produce oocytes that fail to maintain sister chromatids during meiosis.
 
Interactions
Rec8 interacts with 9 markers (Mir25, Mir127, Mir292, ...)
