Homozygotes for a null allele show susceptibility to S. pneumoniae infection, resistance to renal fibrosis, defects in chondrocyte differentiation, and impaired macrophage activation. Homozygotes for another null allele show altered peritoneal inflammation, and susceptibility to T. gondii infection.
