abstract

  • We found no evidence that mutations in arrestin are a cause of RP or stationary night blindness other than Oguchi disease. According to the genomic sequence obtained, a region in exon 8 that has been postulated to represent the site of interaction between arrestin and rhodopsin is 100% conserved between humans and all other mammals studied to date.
