GUCY2F Probably plays a specific functional role in the rods and/or cones of photoreceptors. It may be the enzyme involved in the resynthesis of cGMP required for recovery of the dark state after phototransduction. Belongs to the adenylyl cyclase class-4/guanylyl cyclase family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
