FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Homeobox-containing genes are thought to have a role in controlling development. In Drosophila, the 'engrailed' (en) gene plays an important role during development in segmentation, where it is required for the formation of posterior compartments. Different mutations in the mouse homologs, En1 and En2, produced different developmental defects that frequently are lethal. The human engrailed homologs 1 and 2 encode homeodomain-containing proteins and have been implicated in the control of pattern formation during development of the central nervous system.

PHENOTYPE: Mutant homozygotes usually die within 24 hours of birth. Mutants exhibit nervous system defects, including a lack of most of the colliculi, cerebellum, and the third and fourth cranial nerves in some lines. Skeletal anomalies have also been described. [provided by MGI curators]
