In mice models, PTF1A inactivation reverted pancreatic cells to intestinal cells, suggesting its function as a switch between pancreatic and intestinal cell fates (24) and PTF1A dose reduction resulted in pancreatic hypoplasia and insufficient insulin secretion in a dosage dependent manner (22).
Reduction of Ptf1a gene dosage causes pancreatic hypoplasia and diabetes in mice.
Besides, polysplenia syndrome concomitant with situs inversus totalis and distal pancreatic hypoplasia are rare congenital anomalies.
