Inactivation of the murine X-linked juvenile retinoschisis gene, Rs1h, suggests a role of retinoschisin in retinal cell layer organization and synaptic structure
Deleterious mutations in RS1 encoding retinoschisin are associated with X-linked juvenile retinoschisis (RS), a common form of macular degeneration in males. The disorder is characterized by aExpand

The cGMP-gated Channel and Related Glutamic Acid-rich Proteins Interact with Peripherin-2 at the Rim Region of Rod Photoreceptor Disc Membranes*
The rod cGMP-gated channel is localized in the plasma membrane of rod photoreceptor outer segments, where it plays a central role in phototransduction. It consists of α- and β-subunits that assembleExpand

A 240 kDa protein represents the complete β subunit of the cyclic nucleotide-gated channel from rod photoreceptor
The cyclic nucleotide-gated channel from rod photoreceptors is composed of two distinct subunits (alpha and beta). The properties of the alpha subunit, which can form functional channels by itself,Expand

The heteromeric cyclic nucleotide-gated channel adopts a 3A:1B stoichiometry
Cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels are crucial for visual and olfactory transductions. These channels are tetramers and in their native forms are composed of A and B subunits, with aExpand

Critical roles of isoleucine-364 and adjacent residues in a hydrophobic gate control of phospholipid transport by the mammalian P4-ATPase ATP8A2
Significance Membranes of eukaryotic cells retain an essential asymmetric distribution of phospholipids in the two leaflets, which depends on the translocation by P4-ATPases (flippases) of specificExpand

The 220-kDa Rim Protein of Retinal Rod Outer Segments Is a Member of the ABC Transporter Superfamily*
Outer segments of mammalian rod photoreceptor cells contain an abundantly expressed membrane protein that migrates with an apparent molecular mass of 220 kDa by SDS-gel electrophoresis. We haveExpand

Antigen-antibody interaction. Synthetic peptides define linear antigenic determinants recognized by monoclonal antibodies directed to the cytoplasmic carboxyl terminus of rhodopsin.
The specificities of four monoclonal antibodies rho 1D4, 1C5, 3A6, and 3D6 prepared by immunization of rod outer segments containing rhodopsin have been defined using synthetic peptides. All of theseExpand

RD3, the protein associated with Leber congenital amaurosis type 12, is required for guanylate cyclase trafficking in photoreceptor cells
Guanylate cyclases, GC1 and GC2, are localized in the light-sensitive outer segment compartment of photoreceptor cells, where they play a crucial role in phototransduction by catalyzing the synthesisExpand

Peripherin. A rim-specific membrane protein of rod outer segment discs.
Monoclonal antibodies were used with radioimmune assays and immunocytochemical techniques to identify and localize membrane proteins in bovine rod outer segment (ROS) disc membranes. When ROSExpand

Rom-1 is required for rod photoreceptor viability and the regulation of disk morphogenesis
The homologous membrane proteins Rom-1 and peripherin-2 are localized to the disk rims of photoreceptor outer segments (OSs), where they associate as tetramers and larger oligomers. Disk rims areExpand
