MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the EGR family of C2H2-type zinc-finger proteins. It is a nuclear protein and functions as a transcriptional regulator. The products of target genes it activates are required for differentitation and mitogenesis. Studies suggest this is a cancer suppressor gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for targeted mutations are small and infertile due to pituitary defects. Mutants exhibit reductions in somatotropes and growth hormone content, and a lack of luteinizing hormone-beta expression. Ovaries lack luteinizing hormone receptors. Memory defects are also seen.
