  • Function

    Myristoyl-binding protein that acts as a cargo adapter: specifically binds the myristoyl moiety of a subset of N-terminally myristoylated proteins and is required for their localization. Binds myristoylated GNAT1 and is required for G-protein localization and trafficking in sensory neurons. Binds myristoylated NPHP3; however, in contrast to UNC119B, does not seem to play a major role in ciliary membrane localization of NPHP3. Does not bind all myristoylated proteins. Probably plays a role in trafficking proteins in photoreceptor cells.
  • Tissue specificity

    Retinal-specific. Localized in photoreceptor synapses in the outer plexiform layer of the retina.
  • Involvement in disease

    Note=Defects in UNC119 may be a cause of cone-rod dystrophy. A mutation was found in a 57-year-old woman with late-onset cone-rod dystrophy: from 40 year old, the patient suffered from poor night vision, defective color vision and light-sensitivity. At 57 year old, she displayed reduced visual acuity, myopa, macular atrophy and pericentral ring scotomas. The disease was caused by a heterozygous mutation causing premature termination and truncated UNC119 protein with dominant-negative effect.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the PDE6D/unc-119 family.
  • Domain

    Adopts an immunoglobulin-like beta-sandwich fold forming a hydrophobic cavity that capture N-terminally myristoylated target peptides (PubMed:21642972). Phe residues within the hydrophobic beta sandwich are required for myristate binding (PubMed:22085962).
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome.
