Gene: GUCY2F (guanylate cyclase 2F, retinal) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GUCY2F
Name: guanylate cyclase 2F, retinal
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a guanylyl cyclase found predominantly in photoreceptors in the retina. The encoded protein is thought to be involved in resynthesis of cGMP after light activation of the visual signal transduction cascade, allowing a return to the dark state. This protein is a single-pass type I membrane protein. Defects in this gene may be a cause of X-linked retinitis pigmentosa. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
