Gene: Best1 (bestrophin 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Best1
Name: bestrophin 1
Description: Predicted to have chloride channel activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in detection of light stimulus involved in visual perception and regulation of calcium ion transport. Predicted to localize to the basolateral plasma membrane and chloride channel complex. Used to study bestrophinopathy and vitelliform macular dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in bestrophinopathy; macular degeneration; retinitis pigmentosa 50; and vitelliform macular dystrophy. Is expressed in choroid plexus; neocortex; and telencephalon meninges. Orthologous to human BEST1 (bestrophin 1); PARTICIPATES IN retinitis pigmentosa pathway; INTERACTS WITH 5-Nitro-2-(3-phenylpropylamino)benzoic acid; calcium atom; calcium(0).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: best macular dystrophy; bestrophin-1; Bmd; mBest1; vitelliform macular dystrophy 2 homolog; vitelliform macular dystrophy protein 2 homolog; Vmd2
