Gene: Opn1mw (opsin 1, medium wave sensitive) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Opn1mw
Name: opsin 1, medium wave sensitive
CRRD ID: 620978
Description: Predicted to have G protein-coupled photoreceptor activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to light stimulus; phototransduction; and positive regulation of cytokinesis. Localizes to photoreceptor outer segment. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in blue cone monochromacy; red color blindness; and red-green color blindness. Orthologous to several human genes including OPN1MW2 (opsin 1, medium wave sensitive 2); PARTICIPATES IN retinoid cycle metabolic pathway; visual phototransduction pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: green cone photoreceptor pigment; green-sensitive opsin; medium wavelength-sensitive cone opsin; medium-wave-sensitive opsin 1; opsin 1 (cone pigments), medium-wave-sensitive; opsin 1 (cone pigments), medium-wave-sensitive (color blindness, deutan); opsin 1 (cone pigments), medium-wave-sensitive (color blindness, deutan), green opsin
