Entrez Gene Summary for RIMS1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a RAS gene superfamily member that regulates synaptic vesicle exocytosis. This gene also plays a role in the regulation of voltage-gated calcium channels during neurotransmitter and insulin release. Mutations have suggested a role cognition and have been identified as the cause of cone-rod dystrophy type 7. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for RIMS1 Gene

RIMS1 (Regulating Synaptic Membrane Exocytosis 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RIMS1 include cone-rod dystrophy 7 and cone-rod dystrophy 6. Among its related pathways are Transmission across Chemical Synapses and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel binding. An important paralog of this gene is RIMS4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RIMS1 Gene

  • Rab effector involved in exocytosis. May act as scaffold protein that regulates neurotransmitter release at the active zone. Essential for maintaining normal probability of neurotransmitter release and for regulating release during short-term synaptic plasticity (By similarity).

  • Cone-rod dystrophy 7 (CORD7) [MIM:603649]: An inherited retinal dystrophy characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination, predominantly in the macular region, and initial loss of cone photoreceptors followed by rod degeneration. This leads to decreased visual acuity and sensitivity in the central visual field, followed by loss of peripheral vision. Severe loss of vision occurs earlier than in retinitis pigmentosa. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12659814}. Note=The disease may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
