phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(13) : Chemically induced (ENU)(2) Spontaneous(2) Targeted(9)
Genomic Mutations involving Cryaa (2)
Incidental mutations (data from APF )
 
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation have small lenses that develop progressive opacity beginning in the nucleus. Homozygotes for spontaneous or ENU-induced mutations have normal sized lenses with a white nuclear cataract by weaning age that expands progressively.
