Target

  • Function
    Retina-specific kinase involved in the signal turnoff via phosphorylation of rhodopsin (RHO), the G protein- coupled receptor that initiates the phototransduction cascade. This rapid desensitization is essential for scotopic vision and permits rapid adaptation to changes in illumination.
  • Tissue specificity
    Retinal-specific. Expressed in rods and cones cells.
  • Involvement in disease
    Night blindness, congenital stationary, Oguchi type 2
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. GPRK subfamily.
    Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    Contains 1 RGS domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Autophosphorylated, Ser-21 is a minor site of autophosphorylation compared to Ser-491 and Thr-492 (By similarity). Phosphorylation at Ser-21 is regulated by light and activated by cAMP.
    Farnesylation is required for full activity.
