Gene: Pax6 (paired box 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pax6
Name: paired box 6
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; SMAD binding activity; and enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of cell population proliferation; and nervous system development. Localizes to the nuclear chromatin. Used to study Peters anomaly; aniridia; cataract; and juvenile glaucoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in eye disease (multiple); glucose intolerance; and paranoid schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo ectoderm; eye; and nose. Orthologous to human PAX6 (paired box 6).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
