Involved in negative regulation of guanylate cyclase activity; retina development in camera-type eye; and visual perception. Localizes to the nucleus; photoreceptor inner segment; and photoreceptor outer segment. Used to study Leber congenital amaurosis 12. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Leber congenital amaurosis; Leber congenital amaurosis 12; and retinal degeneration. Is expressed in brain and sensory organ. Orthologous to human RD3 (retinal degeneration 3, GUCY2D regulator).
