Targeted mutants have wide ranging effects, including embryonic lethality, aberrant mesoderm differentation, developmental retardation and disorganized posterior structures; heterozygous null mutants display anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract; other targeted mutants display failure of lens induction and lack primordial germ cells.
