Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have 3',5'-cyclic-GMP phosphodiesterase activity. Involved in detection of light stimulus and retina development in camera-type eye. Localizes to photoreceptor outer segment. Is expressed in eye; retina; and retina outer nuclear layer. Used to study congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant 2; retinitis pigmentosa; and retinitis pigmentosa 40. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant 2 and retinitis pigmentosa 40. Orthologous to human PDE6B (phosphodiesterase 6B).
