MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a homeobox protein and is almost exclusively expressed in the ventral portion of the retina during development. In mouse studies, this gene was found to be required for the correct formation of the optic fissure and other aspects of retinal development. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants for one allele show incomplete closure of optic fissure leading to coloboma, the frequency of which is strongly influenced by genetic background. Homozygous null mutants for 2 different alleles have abnormal projections of ventralretinal ganglion cells. [provided by MGI curators]
