FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the POU-domain family of transcription factors. POU-domain proteins have been observed to play important roles in control of cell identity in several systems. This protein is found in the retina and may play a role in determining or maintaining the identities of a small subset of visual system neurons. Defects in this gene are the cause of non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal dominant type 15. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Affected mice are slightly smaller than their littermates and exhibit vertical head-tossing, circling and general hyperactive behavior typical of the shaker-waltzer class of mutants. [provided by MGI curators]
