MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a homeobox-containing transcription factor that functions in eye development. The gene is expressed early in the eye primordia, and is required for retinal cell fate determination and also regulates stem cell proliferation. Mutations in this gene have been reported in patients with defects in ocular development, including microphthalmia, anophthalmia, and coloboma.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants die neonatally with severe brain defects including absence of forebrain/midbrain structures and fail to form eye structures. Homozygous hypomorph mutants are viable, but lack eyes and optic tracts and have hypothalamic defects. [provided by MGI curators]
