Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited progressive disease which is a majorcause of blindness in western communities. It can be inherited as anautosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive disorder.In the autosomal dominant form,which comprises about 25% of totalcases, approximately 30% of families have mutations in the geneencoding the rod photoreceptor-specific protein rhodopsin. This is thetransmembrane protein which, when photoexcited, initiates the visualtransduction cascade. Defects in this gene are also one of the causes ofcongenital stationary night blindness.RHO (Rhodopsin) is a ProteinCoding gene. Diseases associated with RHO include Night Blindness,Congenital Stationary, Autosomal Dominant 1 and Retinitis Pigmentosa4, Autosomal Dominant Or Recessive. Among its related pathways are thevisual cycle I (vertebrates) and Phototransduction. GO annotations relatedto this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and photoreceptoractivity. An important paralog of this gene is OPN1SW.
Immunogen: Synthesized peptide derived from human Rhodopsin around the non-phosphorylation site of S334.
Calculated MW: 39 kDa
Observed MW: 42 kDa
Buffer: PBS with 0.02% sodium azide, 0.5% BSA and 50% glycerol pH 7.4. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing RHO are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as RHO may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. RHO also interacts with the following gene(s): GNAT1, GNAT2, GNGT1, GRK1, GRK7, RCVRN, RLBP1, SAG. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene.
