phenotypes
All alleles(12) : Targeted(7) Gene trapped(5)
 
Homozygous mutants show aberrant lysosomal storage, with vacuolization in specific cells of most tissues. An abormally flat face and reduced body size are apparent at birth, and health progressively deteriorates, with accompanying generalized edema, ataxia and tremors. Death occurs at ~12 months.
