basisphenoid bone hypoplasia Gene Set

Dataset MPO Gene-Phenotype Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description underdevelopment or reduced size, usually due to reduced cell number, in part of the base of the cranium between the basioccipital and the presphenoid, which usually ossifies separately in the embryo or in the young, and becomes a part of the sphenoid in the adult; in many animals it persists as a separate bone between the basioccipital bone and the presphenoidal bone (Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, MP_0004461)
