Homozygous null mice show impaired context and cued conditioning, hyperactivity, altered social behavior, less vocalization, smaller brains, and impaired olfaction. Males carrying a knock-in allele show impaired social interaction, and enhanced spatial learning and inhibitory synaptic transmission.
