MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of a subfamily of non-clustered, diverged, antennapedia-like homeobox-containing genes. The encoded protein may play a role in the regulation of vertebrate limb myogenesis. Mutations in the related mouse protein may be associated with craniofacial and/or skeletal abnormalities, in addition to neurovascular dysfunction observed in Alzheimer's disease. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Several mutations that inactivate the gene result in mild defects of rib and vertebrae development. Inactivation in conjunction with a null mutation in a related homeobox gene results in more severe defects stemming from impaired somite formation, patterning, and differentiation.
