FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the homeobox transcription factor family. A highly related protein in mouse has been shown to influence cellular processes that control cell adhesion and remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton in myoblast fusion and chondrogenesis. The encoded protein may also play a role in cancer progression. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a targeted gene deletion exhibit short whiskers at birth, defective juvenile hair follicle remodeling, and short adult hair. Fifty percent of homozygotes are born with open eyelids. [provided by MGI curators]
