Literature associating RGS9BP and retinitis pigmentosa 39
Regulator of G protein signaling 9 binding protein; Regulator of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling in phototransduction. Participates in the recovery phase of visual transduction via its interaction with RGS9-1 isoform. Acts as a membrane-anchor that mediates the targeting of RGS9-1 to the photoreceptor outer segment, where phototransduction takes place. Enhances the ability of RGS9-1 to stimulate G protein GTPase activity, allowing the visual signal to be terminated on the physiologically time scale. It also controls the proteolytic stability of RGS9-1, probably by protecting it from degradation (By similarity); Belongs to the RGS7BP/RGS9BP family.
Synonyms: RGS9BP, RGS9BPp, hRGS9BP, Q6ZS82, Q6ZS82p ...
