Official Full Name
atonal homolog 7 (Drosophila)
This intronless gene encodes a member of the basic helix-loop-helix family of transcription factors, with similarity to;Drosophila atonal gene that controls photoreceptor development. Studies in mice suggest that this gene plays a central;role in retinal ganglion cell and optic nerve formation. Mutations in this gene are associated with nonsyndromic;congenital retinal nonattachment.
