HMDB Protein ID HMDBP02562
Secondary Accession Numbers
  • 8061
Name Recoverin
  1. Cancer-associated retinopathy protein
  2. Protein CAR
Gene Name RCVRN
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Involved in calcium ion binding
Specific Function Seems to be implicated in the pathway from retinal rod guanylate cyclase to rhodopsin. May be involved in the inhibition of the phosphorylation of rhodopsin in a calcium-dependent manner. The calcium-bound recoverin prolongs the photoresponse
