Photoactivation-induced instability of rhodopsin mutants T4K and T17M in rod outer segments underlies retinal degeneration in X. laevis transgenic models of retinitis pigmentosa.
 

Author(s): Beatrice M Tam, Syed M Noorwez, Shalesh Kaushal, Masahiro Kono, Orson L Moritz

Journal: J. Neurosci.. 2014 Oct;34(40):13336-48.

 

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited neurodegenerative disease involving progressive vision loss, and is often linked to mutations in the rhodopsin gene. Mutations that abolish N-terminal glycosylation of rhodopsin (T4K and T17M) cause sector RP in which the inferior retina preferentially ...
