Official Full Name
regulator of G-protein signaling 9
This gene encodes a member of the RGS family of GTPase activating proteins that function in various signaling pathways;by accelerating the deactivation of G proteins. This protein is anchored to photoreceptor membranes in retinal cells;and deactivates G proteins in the rod and cone phototransduction cascades. Mutations in this gene result in;bradyopsia. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
