FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a component of connective tissue microfibrils and may be involved in elastic fiber assembly. Mutations in this gene cause congenital contractural arachnodactyly. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for spontaneous, chemically-induced, and targeted null mutations show bilateral syndactyly with fusion of both soft and hard tissues. Deafness found in an X-ray induced allelic mutant is apparently due to the joint disruption of a linked gene. [provided by MGI curators]
