Protein Information
Name RHO
Synonyms OPN2
Function Photoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity (PubMed:8107847, PubMed:7846071). Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth (PubMed:2215617, PubMed:12566452). Light-induced isomerization of the chromophore 11-cis-retinal to all-trans-retinal triggers a conformational change that activates signaling via G-proteins (PubMed:8107847, PubMed:28524165, PubMed:26200343, PubMed:28753425). Subsequent receptor phosphorylation mediates displacement of the bound G- protein alpha subunit by the arrestin SAG and terminates signaling (PubMed:28524165, PubMed:26200343).
Cellular Location Membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein. Cell projection, cilium, photoreceptor outer segment. Note=Synthesized in the inner segment (IS) of rod photoreceptor cells before vectorial transport to disk membranes in the rod outer segment (OS) photosensory cilia.
Tissue Location Rod shaped photoreceptor cells which mediate vision in dim light

Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited progressive diseasewhich is a major cause of blindness in western communities. It canbe inherited as an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, orX-linked recessive disorder. In the autosomal dominant form,whichcomprises about 25% of total cases, approximately 30% of familieshave mutations in the gene encoding the rod photoreceptor-specificprotein rhodopsin. This is the transmembrane protein which, whenphotoexcited, initiates the visual transduction cascade. Defects inthis gene are also one of the causes of congenital stationary nightblindness.
