FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the neuroD family of neurogenic basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins. Expression of this gene can induce transcription from neuron-specific promoters, such as the GAP-43 promoter, which contain a specific DNA sequence known as an E-box. The product of the human gene can induce neurogenic differentiation in non-neuronal cells in Xenopus embryos, and is thought to play a role in the determination and maintenance of neuronal cell fates.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation show elevated neuronal apoptosis resulting in ataxia, incoordination, elevated seizure susceptibility, and death by 35 days. Heterozygotes are moderately affected, and adults are subject to unexplained death. [provided by MGI curators]
