Involvement in diseasei

Defects in Vsx2 are the cause of ocular retardation (OR(J)), a mouse disease characterized by microphthalmia, progressive destruction of the retina, and absence of the optic nerve. The OR(J) mutation is due to an OCHR (STOP) mutation.1 Publication

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed throughout the anterior optic vesicle and all neuroblasts of the optic cup. In the mature retina Is restricted to the inner nuclear layer, in which its expression decreases from the outer to the inner margin. Also detected in regions of the developing thalamus, hindbrain, and ventral spinal cord.

Developmental stagei

Detected by embryonic day 25, by which time the optic cup has formed and the ganglion cell layer can be distinguished. A rapid increase to levels 3- to 4-fold greater than those seen in adult retina occurs in the period from birth (P0) to postnatal day 6 (P6). During this interval, the horizontal, bipolar, amacrine, and cone cells arise from the neuroretinal layer, the inner nuclear layer, and outer nuclear layer separate, and the outer plexiform layer begins to form. Levels begin to decrease by P8, when the rod outer segments are Still differentiating, and reaches its lowest levels in adult retina.
