FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of a homeobox transcription factor gene family similiar to the Drosophila distal-less gene. The encoded protein may play a role in bone development and fracture healing. Mutation in this gene, which is located in a tail-to-tail configuration with another member of the family on the long arm of chromosome 7, may be associated with split-hand/split-foot malformation.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants display multiple defects in craniofacial structures, including ears, nose, mandible and calvaria, and die shortly after birth, with some exhibiting exencephaly. [provided by MGI curators]
