Previous GeneCards Identifiers for LRIT3 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that has a fibronectin type III domain and a C-terminal transmembrane domain, as well as a leucine-rich repeat domain and immunoglobulin-like domain near the N-terminus. The encoded protein may regulate fibroblast growth factor receptors and affect the modification of these receptors, which are glycosylated differently in the Golgi and endoplasmic reticulum. Mutations in this gene are associated with congenital stationary night blindness, type 1F. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
GeneCards Summary for LRIT3 Gene
LRIT3 (Leucine-Rich Repeat, Ig-Like And Transmembrane Domains 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LRIT3 include Night Blindness, Congenital Stationary , 1F, Autosomal Recessive and Congenital Stationary Night Blindness. An important paralog of this gene is ISLR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LRIT3 Gene
Might facilitate FGFR1 exit from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi. Could be a regulator of the FGFRs.
