Summaries for ARL2BP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARL2BP Gene

  • ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF)-like proteins (ARLs) comprise a functionally distinct group of the ARF family of RAS-related GTPases. The protein encoded by this gene binds to ARL2.GTP with high affinity but does not interact with ARL2.GDP, activated ARF, or RHO proteins. The lack of detectable membrane association of this protein or ARL2 upon activation of ARL2 is suggestive of actions distinct from those of the ARFs. This protein is considered to be the first ARL2-specific effector identified, due to its interaction with ARL2.GTP but lack of ARL2 GTPase-activating protein activity. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

  • Retinitis pigmentosa with or without situs inversus (RPSI) [MIM:615434]: A disorder characterized by variable association of retinitis pigmentosa with situs inversus. 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. Situs inversus is a congenital abnormality in which organs in the thorax and the abdomen are opposite to their normal positions due to lateral transposition. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23849777}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
