  • peripheral membrane protein bound by ionic forces to the outer leaflet of the photoreceptor inner segment plasma membrane
  • primarily localized on the outer surface of the inner segments of cones and rods as well as the outer nuclear and outer plexiform layers of the retina
  • basic FUNCTION
  • play an important role in the development and maintenance of retinal cytoarchitecture
  • potentially involved in phospholipid binding and cell-cell interactions
  • mediating interactions/adhesion between photoreceptor, bipolar, and Muller cells, contributing to the maintenance of the cytoarchitectural integrity of the retina
  • functioning as an adhesive protein in preserving the structural and functional integrity of the retina
  • having a functional role locally at the site of secretion and the association with the membrane is necessary for maintaining the stability and architecture of the photoreceptor inner segment
  • interactions between L-VGCC-alpha 1 subunits and retinoschisin play an important role in the membrane retention of L-VGCC-alpha 1 subunits and photoreceptor-bipolar synaptic transmission
  • has a role in the circadian regulation of L-type VGCCs
  • in retinal cell layer organization and synaptic structure
  • in the retina, functions as an adhesion molecule to preserve the structural organization of the retinal cell layers, a critical factor for promoting visual signal transduction
  • having direct and specific effect on anionic lipid bilayers containing PS in the presence of Ca2++
  • having dual functionality, as a cell-adhesion molecule and also as a regulatory accessory of several membrane protein assemblies

  • Pathologic changes in hemizygous Rs1h(-/Y) male mice are a marked splitting of the inner nuclear layer, a disorganization of the retinal cell layers, and a later degeneration of the photoreceptors whitch is more pronounced in cones
  • Rs1h-KO mice display a thinned and disorganized outer nuclear layer, rod outer segments are misaligned and abundant schisis cavities spanned the inner nuclear, ERG a- and b-wave amplitudes are reduced by 33% and 50%, respectively
