Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Mice homozygous for a gene trap allele show late embryonic lethality. Mice homozygous for a null allele die by E10.5 displaying a growth arrest, abnormal yolk sac angiogenesis and heart dilation while mutant ES cells show elevated apoptosis, G2 cell cycle arrest, telomere elongation and aneuploidy.
