neural retina leucine zipper

ENTREZID: 4901 | Type: NA | Map: 14q11.2-q12

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a basic motif-leucine zipper transcription factor of the Maf subfamily. The encoded protein is conserved among vertebrates and is a critical intrinsic regulator of photoceptor development and function. Mutations in this gene have been associated with retinitis pigmentosa and retinal degenerative diseases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
