HRG4 (HGMW-approved symbol UNC119) is a novel human photoreceptor-enriched gene coding for a 240-amino-acid protein. Initially, HRG4 was shown to be 57% homologous to a newly discovered Caenorhabditis elegans gene, mutated in a coordination mutant and involved in chemosensation. Recently, HRG4 has been localized to the photoreceptor synapses in the outer… CONTINUE READING
