Genomic Mutations involving Tgfa (1)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
 
Homozygous mutants have curly vibrissae, wavy hair with misaligned hair follicles, reduced body weight, and eye defects including open eyelids at birth, corneal scarring and microphthalmia. Some heterozygotes show mild forms of the eye abnormalities.
