RGR (gene)
RPE-retinal G protein-coupled receptor is a protein that in humans is encoded by the RGR gene.
Defects in this gene are a cause of retinitis pigmentosa. The gene is a member of the rhodopsin-like receptor subfamily of GPCR. Like other opsins which bind retinaldehyde, it contains a conserved lysine residue in the seventh transmembrane domain. The protein presumably acts as a photoisomerase to catalyze the conversion of all-trans-retinal to 11-cis-retinal, similar to retinochrome in invertebrates. The reverse isomerization occurs with rhodopsin in retinal photoreceptor cells. The protein is exclusively expressed in tissue adjacent to retinal photoreceptor cells, the retinal pigment epithelium and Mueller cells. This gene may be associated with autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (arRP and adRP, respectively). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

A blow for personal genome testing | Genotopia
Hey honey–remember when I accidentally left the chicken coop open and they all flew away? Well I think they’ve come back home to roost! Last summer, we did an analysis of the 23andMe commercial promoting their genetic testing service and the egotistical identity politics it both taps into and contributes to. The ad was all about how your genes were “You” and knowing about them would enable you to predict your genetic future.
