From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger transcription factor that may play a role in eye development. Defects in this gene have been associated with high myopia. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

From UniProt:

May be involved in transcriptional regulation.

  • Myopia 21, autosomal dominant

From UniProt:

Myopia 21, autosomal dominant (MYP21): A refractive error of the eye, in which parallel rays from a distant object come to focus in front of the retina, vision being better for near objects than for far. [MIM:614167]
