phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(29) : Gene trapped(3) Targeted(25) Transgenic(1)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygotes for targeted null alleles exhibit sensory neuron losses affecting coordination, balance, hearing, taste, and breathing, cerebellar abnormalities, increased sympathetic neuron number, and postnatal lethality. Carriers show mild defects.
