25957687 Study shows that RdCVF acts through binding to Basigin-1 (BSG1), a transmembrane protein expressed specifically by photoreceptors. BSG1 binds to the glucose transporter GLUT1, resulting in increased glucose entry into cones.
21079812 Data suggest a critical role for TXNL6 in MsrA repair of essential lens proteins under oxidative stress conditions and that TXNL6 is important for MsrA defense protection against cataract.
20949100 regulation of the Nucleoredoxin-like genes involves a CRX responsive element that can act as both as a positive regulator of promoter activity and as a modulator of cell-type specificity
19843539 CHX10 regulates RdCVF promoter activity in the inner retina.
19402160 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18474255 TXNL6 probably protects retinal cells from photooxidative damage-induced apoptosis via upregulation of NF-kappaB activity
17249548 RdCVF variants have roles in leber congenital amaurosis
15220920 is a truncated thioredoxin-like protein specifically expressed by photoreceptors. The identification of this protein offers new treatment possibilities for retinitis pigmentosa
