Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Homozygous targeted null mutants die either at embryonic day 10.5 with cardiac outflow defects and/or brain exencephaly or at birth with skeletal dysplasia including micromelia and craniofacial defects. An exon 3 deletion mutant shows only a lens defect.
