Target

  • Function
    Delivers retinol from the liver stores to the peripheral tissues. In plasma, the RBP-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin, this prevents its loss by filtration through the kidney glomeruli.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in RBP4 are a cause of retinol-binding protein deficiency (RBP deficiency) [MIM:180250]. This condition causes night vision problems. It produces a typical 'fundus xerophthalmicus', featuring a progressed atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
