FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Purines are necessary for many cellular processes, including DNA replication, transcription, and energy metabolism. Ten enzymatic steps are required to synthesize inosine monophosphate (IMP) in the de novo pathway of purine biosynthesis. The enzyme encoded by this gene catalyzes the fourth step of IMP biosynthesis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice heterozygous for spontaneous or ENU-induced mutations exhibit craniofacial abnormalities, most notably a domed cranium and short snout, variable white belly spots and white tail tips, and a range of eye defects including microphthalmia and anophthalmia. [provided by MGI curators]
