Homozygotes for a null allele show higher bone mineral density, hypoactivity, and decreased heart rate. Homozygotes for a different null allele show increased resistance to endotoxin challenge, impaired LPS-induced febrile and TNF responses, and increased susceptibility to diet-induced pancreatitis.
