All mutations/alleles(7) : Targeted(7)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation die prior to implantation. Homozygotes for a targeted missense mutation exhibit brittle and greying hair, cachexia, infertility, osteosclerosis, osteoporosis, reduced lifespan, UV sensitivity, and skin defects.
