FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the SLITRK protein family. Members of this family are integral membrane proteins that are characterized by two N-terminal leucine-rich repeat (LRR) domains and a C-terminal region that shares homology with trk neurotrophin receptors. This protein functions as a regulator of neurite outgrowth required for normal hearing and vision. Mutations in this gene are a cause of myopia and deafness. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous deficient mice show pronounced reduction in cochlear innervation. Innervation to the posterior crista is variably impaired and a there is a loss of neurons in the spiral and vestibular ganglia. [provided by MGI curators]
