Phenotype Homozygous State Diarrhoea. Multiple plaques on GIT and lymphomegaly. Other mutants homozygote for a point mutation have soft feces at weaning and develop diarrhea associated with malapsorption syndrome. Homozygous null mutants pass blood in their feces at 6 months, and 65% of null mutants have intestinal tumors at 1 year.
