Basic Information
The protein encoded by this gene is found in rod cells in the back of the eye and is essential for vision in low-light conditions. The encoded protein binds to 11-cis retinal and is activated when light hits the retinal molecule. Defects in this gene are a cause of congenital stationary night blindness.

Sequence Homology
Humans, mice, and rats have highly similar genes, making them important for disease research and drug development. By studying their gene relationships, researchers can develop effective treatments for both humans and animals. Gene homology among these organisms allows for the translation of animal experimental results to humans, improving disease treatment and prevention.
Genomic Information
Genomic information encompasses all genetic information about an organism's or population's genome, including its content, structure, and function.The study of genomic data can help us better comprehend the genetic traits and evolutionary history of species, uncover the link between genes and phenotypes, investigate disease mechanisms, and provide the groundwork for customized therapy.

Disease & Mutation
We collected over two million mutation sites from the ClinVar database and classified them at RDDC. Based on the categories assigned by ClinVar, we conducted a rigorous screening and filtered out low-quality mutation sites to ensure data accuracy.
Pathogenicity Classification
Transcripts & Proteins
Transcripts are RNA molecules that are created during DNA transcription, and the translation products of these transcripts are proteins that serve numerous roles in the body. Transcripts and proteins are both important in biological research. The research of transcripts can help us uncover the subtle links between genes and illnesses, whereas the study of proteins can help us understand the processes of cellular function and disease etiology, as well as give prospective treatment targets.
Gene Expression
The larger the RPKM calculation result, the higher the expression level of the corresponding gene.
RNA-seq was performed of tissue samples from 95 human individuals representing 27 different tissues.
Subcellular Localization
Subcellular localization is the process of locating certain molecules or cell structures. It is highly valuable for study in the life sciences.It aids in the understanding of physiological processes and cell functioning by researchers. A thorough understanding of critical processes such cell tissue shape, signal transduction, and metabolic pathways will give a solid foundation for the detection and treatment of illnesses by identifying the locations of molecules within cells.

Protein Interaction
Protein-protein interaction is when two or more proteins bind together to perform their functions. It plays a vital role in most biochemical processes, such as signal molecules transmitting signals between cells. Molecular machines within the cells perform important functions through protein-protein interactions.

Gene target medications are a novel form of treatment that can alter genes or proteins while also blocking disease processes. It precisely detects and chooses target proteins in order to induce therapeutic effects. Target medications are categorized into several groups based on disease causes and molecular foundation, and numerous ways are employed to treat illnesses.
