glossopharyngeal nerve hypoplasia Gene Set

Dataset MPO Gene-Phenotype Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description underdevelopment or reduced size, usually due to a reduced number of cells, of the sensory and autonomic axons to the parotid gland, carotid body, posterior third of the tongue; the branchial motor component contains motor fibers that innervate muscles that elevate the pharynx and larynx, and the tympanic branch supplies parasympathetic fibers to the otic ganglion (Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, MP_0004569)
