All mutations/alleles(4) : Targeted(4)
Incidental mutations (data from APF )
Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit defects of the heart, lungs, skull, limbs, spinal column, eyes, inner ears, and urogenital system, and perinatal mortality. Heterozygotes show abnormalities of the Cowpers' gland and intestinal mucosa.
