Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits 11-cis retinal binding activity. Predicted to be involved in visual perception. Predicted to localize to the cell body. Used to study Bothnia retinal dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Bothnia retinal dystrophy; Newfoundland cone-rod dystrophy; fundus albipunctatus; night blindness; and retinitis pigmentosa. Orthologous to human RLBP1 (retinaldehyde binding protein 1).
