phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(18) : Gene trapped(14) Targeted(4)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Females homozygous for a targeted null mutation are sterile with a block in folliculogenesis. Mutant oocytes exhibit perinuclear organelle aggregation, unusual Golgi complexes, absence of cortical granules, and impaired granulosa cell connections.
 
Interactions
Gdf9 interacts with 75 markers (Mir7-1, Mir15a, Mir15b, ...)
