All mutations/alleles(18) : Targeted(18)
Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Homozygous mutants fail to develop normal kidneys or gonads, and on some genetic backgrounds, a spleen. Mutants have abnormalities of the heart, mesothelium and lungs and die between embryonic day 13.5 and birth.
