MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is an IRX family-related homeobox protein that may play a role in cell adhesion. Studies in mice suggest that this protein may be a regulator of tendon development. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit thin, hypoplastic tendons with reduced tensile strength. [provided by MGI curators]
