Comparison of the retinitis pigmentosa mutations in rhodopsin with a functional map of the C5a receptor

We compare the known retinitis pigmentosa (RP) mutations in rhodopsin with mutational data obtained for the complement factor 5a receptor (C5aR), a member of the rhodopsin-like family of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). We have performed genetic analyses that define residues that are required for C5aR folding and function. The cognate residues in… CONTINUE READING
