Mutations,
alleles, and
phenotypes
All mutations/alleles(10) : Gene trapped(1) Spontaneous(1) Targeted(8)
 
Homozygous null mutants die neonatally with severe brain defects including absence of forebrain/midbrain structures and fail to form eye structures. Homozygous hypomorph mutants are viable, but lack eyes and optic tracts and have hypothalamic defects.
 
Interactions
Rax interacts with 38 markers (Mir7-1, Mir17, Mir20b, ...)
