Literature associating GRK1 and congenital stationary night blindness
Rhodopsin kinase GRK1; Retina-specific kinase involved in the signal turnoff via phosphorylation of rhodopsin (RHO), the G protein- coupled receptor that initiates the phototransduction cascade . This rapid desensitization is essential for scotopic vision and permits rapid adaptation to changes in illumination (By similarity). May play a role in the maintenance of the outer nuclear layer in the retina (By similarity).
Synonyms: GRK1, GRK1p, hGRK1, Q15835, Q15835p ...
