This gene belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1family, opsin subfamily. It encodes the blue cone pigment genewhich is one of three types of cone photoreceptors responsible fornormal color vision. Defects in this gene are the cause of tritancolor blindness (tritanopia). Affected individuals lack blue andyellow sensory mechanisms while retaining those for red and green.Defective blue vision is characteristic.
