phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(14) : Gene trapped(1) Targeted(13)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF , CvDC )
 
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit retarded postnatal growth, impaired sensorimotor function, and greatly reduced lifespan. Heterozygotes show enhanced anxiety-related behaviors.
