Summaries for NXNL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NXNL1 Gene

  • Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a disease that leads to blindness by degeneration of cone photoreceptors. Rods produce factors required for cone viability. The protein encoded by this gene is one of those factors and is similar to a truncated form of thioredoxin. This gene has been proposed to have therapeutic value against RP. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]

GeneCards Summary for NXNL1 Gene

NXNL1 (Nucleoredoxin Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NXNL1 include Retinitis Pigmentosa and Bardet-Biedl Syndrome. An important paralog of this gene is NXNL2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NXNL1 Gene

  • May play a role in cone cell viability, slowing down cone degeneration, does not seem to play a role in degenerating rods.
