Summaries for RDH12 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RDH12 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an NADPH-dependent retinal reductase whose highest activity is toward 9-cis and all-trans-retinol. The encoded enzyme also plays a role in the metabolism of short-chain aldehydes but does not exhibit steroid dehydrogenase activity. Defects in this gene are a cause of Leber congenital amaurosis type 13 and Retinitis Pigmentosa 53. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

GeneCards Summary for RDH12 Gene

RDH12 (Retinol Dehydrogenase 12 (All-Trans/9-Cis/11-Cis)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RDH12 include leber congenital amaurosis 13 and retinitis pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and retinol dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RDH14.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RDH12 Gene

  • Exhibits an oxidoreductive catalytic activity towards retinoids. Most efficient as an NADPH-dependent retinal reductase. Displays high activity toward 9-cis and all-trans-retinol. Also involved in the metabolism of short-chain aldehydes. No steroid dehydrogenase activity detected. Might be the key enzyme in the formation of 11-cis-retinal from 11-cis-retinol during regeneration of the cone visual pigments.

  • Leber congenital amaurosis 13 (LCA13) [MIM:612712]: A severe dystrophy of the retina, typically becoming evident in the first years of life. Visual function is usually poor and often accompanied by nystagmus, sluggish or near-absent pupillary responses, photophobia, high hyperopia and keratoconus. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15258582, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15322982}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Retinitis pigmentosa 53 (RP53) [MIM:612712]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. 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. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19140180, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19956407}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
