Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have farnesylated protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including phototransduction, visible light; regulation of rhodopsin mediated signaling pathway; and retina homeostasis. Localizes to photoreceptor inner segment. Used to study Leber congenital amaurosis 4. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Leber congenital amaurosis; Leber congenital amaurosis 4; blindness; and retinitis pigmentosa. Orthologous to human AIPL1 (aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein like 1).
