Summaries for REEP6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for REEP6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene may be involved in the transport of receptors from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the cell surface. The encoded protein may also play a role in regulating ER membrane structure. This gene is required for the proper development of retinal rods and photoreceptors, with defects in this gene being associated with retinitis pigmentosa 77. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017]

GeneCards Summary for REEP6 Gene

REEP6 (Receptor Accessory Protein 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with REEP6 include Retinitis Pigmentosa 77 and Retinitis Pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Olfactory Signaling Pathway. An important paralog of this gene is REEP5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for REEP6 Gene

  • May play a role in intracellular protein transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell surface (By similarity). Required for correct function and survival of retinal photoreceptors (PubMed:27889058).

  • Retinitis pigmentosa 77 (RP77) [MIM:617304]: A form of retinitis pigmentosa, 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. RP77 inheritance is autosomal recessive. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:27889058}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
