IFT140 Component of the IFT complex A (IFT-A), a complex required for retrograde ciliary transport and entry into cilia of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Plays a pivotal role in proper development and function of ciliated cells through its role in ciliogenesis and/or cilium maintenance. Required for the development and maintenance of the outer segments of rod and cone photoreceptor cells. Plays a role in maintenance and the delivery of opsin to the outer segment of photoreceptor cells. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
