Mandibular growth retardation, coupled with relative macroglossia in E14 Dmm/Dmm mice, suggests that the concerted development of the palate and lower jaw complex in the mutant is aberrant. Detection of micrognathia and pseudomacroglossia in homozygotes, before the time of palate closure, supports the hypothesis that a relationship exists between growth retardation of Meckel's cartilage and malformation of the secondary palate, as predicted by the Pierre-Robin sequence.
