Alleles
and
phenotypes
All alleles(8) : Targeted(7) Gene trapped(1)
 
Homozygotes for a null allele show abnormal retinal function and retinol level, delayed heart trabeculation, and increased myocyte proliferation and fibronectin deposition in cardiac jelly and nascent valves. Homozygotes for another null allele show testicular defects on a vitamin A-deficient diet.
