Summaries for RBP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RBP4 Gene

  • This protein belongs to the lipocalin family and is the specific carrier for retinol (vitamin A alcohol) in the blood. It delivers retinol from the liver stores to the peripheral tissues. In plasma, the RBP-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin which prevents its loss by filtration through the kidney glomeruli. A deficiency of vitamin A blocks secretion of the binding protein posttranslationally and results in defective delivery and supply to the epidermal cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RBP4 Gene

RBP4 (Retinol Binding Protein 4, Plasma) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RBP4 include progressive retinal dystrophy due to retinol transport defect and retinal dystrophy, iris coloboma, and comedogenic acne syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Downstream signaling events of B Cell Receptor (BCR). GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and retinol binding.

  • Microphthalmia, isolated, with coloboma, 10 (MCOPCB10) [MIM:616428]: A disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues. Ocular abnormalities like opacities of the cornea and lens, scaring of the retina and choroid, and other abnormalities may also be present. Ocular colobomas are a set of malformations resulting from abnormal morphogenesis of the optic cup and stalk, and the fusion of the fetal fissure (optic fissure). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25910211}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Retinal dystrophy, iris coloboma, and comedogenic acne syndrome (RDCCAS) [MIM:615147]: A disease characterized by retinal degeneration, ocular colobomas involving both the anterior and posterior segment, impaired night vision and loss of visual acuity. Additional characteristic features include developmental abnormalities and severe acne. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23189188, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9888420}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Loss of functional RBP4 protein results in serum retinol deficiency. Lack of normal levels of retinol impairs the visual cycle leading to night blindness at early stages; prolonged deficiency may lead to retinal degeneration. Additionally, retinol deficiency may result in dry skin, increased susceptibility to infection and acne (PubMed:23189188). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23189188}.
