Retinaldehyde-binding protein 1 (IPR032941)

Short name: RLBP1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Retinaldehyde-binding protein 1 (RLBP1, also known as CRALBP) is a retinoid-binding protein expressed in retinal pigment epithelial and Müller glia and is believed to be involved in the retinal visual cycle [PMID: 25607845]. It is essential for mammalian vision by routing 11-cis-retinoids for the conversion of photobleached opsin molecules into photosensitive visual pigments [PMID: 19846785]. Mutations in the RLBP1 gene cause retinitis pigmentosa autosomal recessive (ARRP) [PMID: 9326942] and Bothnia retinal dystrophy (BRD) [PMID: 11868161].
