phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(5) : Chemically induced (ENU)(1) Gene trapped(1) Targeted(3)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygotes for targeted null mutations show increased sensitivity to LPS-induced shock, defective phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, lupus-like autoimmunity, degeneration of photoreceptors, decreased platelet aggregation and protection from induced pulmonary thromboembolism and thrombosis.
