Nullizygous mice show altered inflammatory responses. One null mutation causes resistance to lethal anaphylaxis, abnormal eicosanoid production and neutrophil recruitment while another leads to increased body fat, bone density, leptin and VLDL cholesterol levels and resistance to autoimmune uveitis.
