Gene: Rho (rhodopsin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rho
Name: rhodopsin
Description: Predicted to have G protein-coupled photoreceptor activity; retinal binding activity; and spectrin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including photoreceptor cell maintenance; phototransduction; and visual perception. Localizes to cell-cell junction; photoreceptor inner segment; and photoreceptor outer segment. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; and heart. Used to study congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant 1 and retinitis pigmentosa 4. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant 1; fundus albipunctatus; night blindness; retinitis pigmentosa; and retinitis pigmentosa 4. Orthologous to human RHO (rhodopsin); PARTICIPATES IN altered visual phototransduction pathway; retinitis pigmentosa pathway; retinoid cycle metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 5-(1,4-diazepane-1-sulfonyl)isoquinoline; Alkannin.
Type: protein-coding
