This gene encodes a member of LIM-homeodomain family of proteins containing two N-terminal zinc-binding LIM domains, 1;homeodomain, and a C-terminal glutamine-rich domain. It functions as a transcription factor, and is essential for the;normal development of dorsal limb structures, the glomerular basement membrane, the anterior segment of the eye, and;dopaminergic and serotonergic neurons. Mutations in this gene are associated with nail-patella syndrome. Alternatively;spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
