Summaries for RHO Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RHO Gene

  • Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited progressive disease which is a major cause of blindness in western communities. It can be inherited as an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive disorder. In the autosomal dominant form,which comprises about 25% of total cases, approximately 30% of families have mutations in the gene encoding the rod photoreceptor-specific protein rhodopsin. This is the transmembrane protein which, when photoexcited, initiates the visual transduction cascade. Defects in this gene are also one of the causes of congenital stationary night blindness.

GeneCards Summary for RHO Gene

RHO (Rhodopsin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RHO include retinitis pigmentosa 4, autosomal dominant or recessive and night blindness, congenital stationary, autosomal dominant 1. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and photoreceptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is OPN1SW.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RHO Gene

  • Photoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity. Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth. Light-induced isomerization of 11-cis to all-trans retinal triggers a conformational change leading to G-protein activation and release of all-trans retinal.

  • Retinitis pigmentosa 4 (RP4) [MIM:613731]: 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:1302614, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1391967, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1833777, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1840561, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1862076, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1897520, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1985460, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19960070, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2137202, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2215617, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22334370, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2239971, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7633434, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7981701, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7987326, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7987331, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8045708, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8076945, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8081400, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8088850, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8317502, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8353500, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8554077, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9452035}.
