RPGRIP1 May function as scaffolding protein. Required for normal location of RPGR at the connecting cilium of photoreceptor cells. Required for normal disk morphogenesis and disk organization in the outer segment of photoreceptor cells and for survival of photoreceptor cells. Belongs to the RPGRIP1 family. Strong expression in retina, with weaker expression in testis. Expressed in other neurons such as amacrine cells. Colocalizes with RGPR in the outer segment of rod photoreceptors and cone outer segments. 6 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
