Function May play a role in encephalic photoreception.
Tissue specificity Strongly expressed in brain. Highly expressed in the preoptic area and paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus. Shows highly patterned expression in other regions of the brain, being enriched in selected regions of the cerebral cortex, cerebellar Purkinje cells, a subset of striatal neurons, selected thalamic nuclei, and a subset of interneurons in the ventral horn of the spinal cord.
Sequence similarities Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Opsin subfamily.
Cellular localization Membrane.
