Target

  • FunctionMicrotubule-associated protein regulating the stability and length of the microtubule-based axoneme of photoreceptors. Required for the differentiation of photoreceptor cells, it plays a role in the organization of the outer segment of rod and cone photoreceptors ensuring the correct orientation and higher order stacking of outer segment disks along the photoreceptor axoneme.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in retina. Not expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, spleen and pancreas.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in RP1 are the cause of retinitis pigmentosa type 1 (RP1) [MIM:180100]. RP leads to degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 2 doublecortin domains.
  • DomainThe doublecortin domains, which mediate interaction with microtubules, are required for regulation of microtubule polymerization and function in photoreceptor differentiation.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton > cilium axoneme. Cell projection > cilium > photoreceptor outer segment. Specifically localized in the connecting cilia of rod and cone photoreceptors.
