MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the Antp homeobox family and encodes a nuclear protein with a homeobox DNA-binding domain. It is included in a cluster of homeobox B genes located on chromosome 17. The encoded protein functions as a sequence-specific transcription factor that is involved in development. Intracellular or ectopic expression of this protein expands hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in vivo and in vitro, making it a potential candidate for therapeutic stem cell expansion. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous disruption of this gene causes cervical vertebral transformation and may lead to pre- or neonatal lethality, sternal defects, impaired ventral body wall formation, diaphragm hernias and heart anomalies. Homozygotes for a null allele show a proliferation defect in hematopoietic stem cells. [provided by MGI curators]
