VSX2

A gene on chromosome 14q24.3 that encodes a homeobox protein which plays a key role in the specification and morphogenesis of the sensory retina. It may participate in the development of the cells of the inner nuclear layer, particularly bipolar cells.

Molecular pathology
VSX2 mutations are associated with microphthalmia, cataracts and iris abnormalities.
