MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the Vsx (visual system homeobox) family which belongs to the larger PRD homeobox class. The encoded protein is required for eye organogenesis and controls retinal development. Disruption of this gene is associated with ocular retardation J (orJ), a mouse disease which causes microphthalmia, retinal degeneration and optic nerve aplasia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2014]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for spontaneous mutations exhibit microphthalmia, lack of retinal intercellular channels, and agenesis of the optic nerve. Homozygotes for one mutant allele also have a germ cell maturation defect with sterility in both sexes. [provided by MGI curators]
