phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(9) : Chemically induced (ENU)(1) Spontaneous(1) Targeted(7)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygotes for targeted and spontaneous mutations exhibit markedly increased size of striated muscle due to both hyperplasia and hypertrophy, reduced adiposity, and increased bone mineral density.
