From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene contains a zinc finger SWI2/SNF2 and MuDR (SWIM) domain. Proteins with SWIM domains have been found in a diverse number of species and are predicted to interact with DNA or proteins. Mutations in this gene result in acromelic frontonasal dysostosis.

  • Acromelic frontonasal dysostosis

From UniProt:

Acromelic frontonasal dysostosis (AFND): A rare variant form of frontonasal dysplasia, an array of abnormalities affecting the eyes, forehead and nose and linked to midfacial dysraphia. The clinical picture is highly variable. Major findings include true ocular hypertelorism, broadening of the nasal root, median facial cleft affecting the nose and/or upper lip and palate, unilateral or bilateral clefting of the alae nasi, lack of formation of the nasal tip, anterior cranium bifidum occultum, a V-shaped or widow's peak frontal hairline. AFND is characterized by the association of frontonasal malformations with various combinations of polydactyly, tibial hypoplasia, epibulbar dermoid, encephalocoele, corpus callosum agenesis and Dandy-Walker malformation.
