• Official Full Name
  • visual system homeobox 1
  • Background
  • The protein encoded by this gene contains a paired-like homeodomain and binds to the core of the locus control region of the red/green visual pigment gene cluster. The encoded protein may regulate expression of the cone opsin genes early in development. Mutations in this gene can cause posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy and keratoconus. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described.

Protein Function

VSX1 has several biochemical functions, for example, sequence-specific DNA binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by VSX1 itself. We selected most functions VSX1 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with VSX1. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
