Gene: Prph2 (peripherin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Prph2
Name: peripherin 2
Description: Involved in retina development in camera-type eye. Localizes to the photoreceptor outer segment. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa 7. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in choroidal sclerosis; fundus albipunctatus; and retinal disease (multiple). Is expressed in eye; head; retina; and retina outer nuclear layer. Orthologous to human PRPH2 (peripherin 2); PARTICIPATES IN retinitis pigmentosa pathway; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis pathway; INTERACTS WITH paracetamol; sodium fluoride; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
