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 DMRT gene family, sharing a DM DNA-binding domain with Drosophila 'doublesex' (dsx) and C. elegans mab3, genes involved in sex determination in these organisms. Also, this gene is located in a region of the human genome (chromosome 9p24.3) associated with gonadal dysgenesis and XY sex reversal. Hence this gene is one of the candidates for sex-determining gene(s) on chr 9. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for disruptions in this gene display perinatal lethality due to breathing difficulties, multiple axial skeletal defects including kinked tails and rib and vertebral malformations, and abnormal somite organization. [provided by MGI curators]
