This gene is a member of the paired box (PAX) family of transcription factors. Members of this gene family typically contain a paired box domain, an octapeptide, and a paired-type homeodomain. These genes play critical roles during fetal development and cancer growth. Mice lacking this gene exhibit impaired development of organs, musculature and the skeleton, including absent and abnormally developed teeth, and neonatal lethality. Mutations in the human gene are associated with selective tooth agenesis-3. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]. Sequence Note: The RefSeq transcript and protein were derived from genomic sequence to make the sequence consistent with the reference genome assembly. The genomic coordinates used for the transcript record were based on alignments.

The mRNAs were aligned against the mouse (Jun. 2020 (GRCm39/mm39)) genome using
translated blat. When a single mRNA aligned in multiple places, the alignment
having the highest base identity was found. Only those alignments having a base
identity level within 1% of the best and at least 25% base identity with the
genomic sequence were kept.
Specifically, the translated blat command is:
blat -noHead -q=rnax -t=dnax -mask=lower target.fa query.fa target.query.psl
where target.fa is one of the chromosome sequence of the genome assembly,
and the query.fa is the mRNAs from RefSeq
The resulting PSL outputs are filtered:
pslCDnaFilter -minId=0.35 -minCover=0.25 -globalNearBest=0.0100 -minQSize=20 \
-ignoreIntrons -repsAsMatch -ignoreNs -bestOverlap \
The filtered mm39.xenoRefGene.psl is converted to
to display for this track.
