Table 4 Phenotypic changes in mice carrying loss-of-function mutations of the predicted brain and PBMC target genes.

From: Characterization of microRNA expression profiles in normal human tissues

  1. 1 Phenotype in nervous system, including behavioral and neurological defects, but no defects in immune and hematopoietic system.
  2. 2 Phenotype in immune system, including the hematopoietic system, but no nervous system or behavioral/neurological defects.
  3. 3 Phenotype from both 1 and 2 can be seen.
  4. 4 Embryonic lethal with no other phenotypic records, indicating that the embryo dies too early to observe meaningful phenotype.
  5. 5 Defects in other tissues/organs/systems than nervous and immune systems.
  6. 6 The phenotypic record showed no defect was seen.
