FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the POU-domain transcription factor family and may be involved in maintaining visual system neurons in the retina. The level of the encoded protein is also elevated in a majority of breast cancers, resulting in accelerated tumor growth. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygote null mice have a 70% reduction in retinal ganglion cells, a thin retina, and an optic nerve with a decreased diameter and disorganized axons. Eyes have miotic pupils and defective optokinetic reflexes that prevent photo-entrainment. [provided by MGI curators]
