FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a homeobox-containing transcription factor. This transcription factor functions in heart formation and development. Mutations in this gene cause atrial septal defect with atrioventricular conduction defect, and also tetralogy of Fallot, which are both heart malformation diseases. Mutations in this gene can also cause congenital hypothyroidism non-goitrous type 5, a non-autoimmune condition. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous mutants show cardiac development arrest after looping, growth retardation, hematopoiesis and angiogenesis defects in yolk sac, and die at embryonic day 9-10. Heterozygotes also show cardiac developmental defects. [provided by MGI curators]
