FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a zonula occluden that is a member of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase homolog family. The encoded protein functions as a component of the tight junction barrier in epithelial and endothelial cells and is necessary for proper assembly of tight junctions. Mutations in this gene have been identified in patients with hypercholanemia, and genomic duplication of a 270 kb region including this gene causes autosomal dominant deafness-51. Alternatively spliced transcripts encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous mutation of this gene results in lethality shortly after implantation due to arrest in early gastrulation. Structure and permeability barrier of the apical junctional complex are altered in cells. [provided by MGI curators]
