All mutations/alleles(12) : Targeted(12)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Homozygotes for targeted null mutations exhibit retarded postnatal growth, proportionate dwarfism, decreased plasma insulin-like growth factor I levels, small pituitaries, reduced fecundity in females, and extended life-span.
