Gene: GPR143 (G protein-coupled receptor 143) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GPR143
Name: G protein-coupled receptor 143
Description: This gene encodes a protein that binds to heterotrimeric G proteins and is targeted to melanosomes in pigment cells. This protein is thought to be involved in intracellular signal transduction mechanisms. Mutations in this gene cause ocular albinism type 1, also referred to as Nettleship-Falls type ocular albinism, a severe visual disorder. A related pseudogene has been identified on chromosome Y.

Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
