LIM homeobox transcription factor 1-beta, also known as LMX1B, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the LMX1B gene.[5][6]


LMX1B is a LIM homeobox transcription factor which plays a central role in dorso-ventral patterning of the vertebrate limb.[7]

Clinical significance

Mutations in the LMX1B gene are associated with the Nail-patella syndrome.[8]
