25799540 Findings suggest that AIPL1 function in retinal photoreceptor cells is not related to the role of EB proteins in microtubule dynamics or primary ciliogenesis, but their association may be related to a specific role in the retinal photoreceptors.
25596619 Gene therapy based approach may be worthy of consideration in a small group of selected patients with preserved outer retinal structure in AIPL1 Leber's congenital amaurosis.
25274777 The authors established a transgenic mouse model for cone-rod dystrophy carrying human AIPL1 gene with deletion in the C-terminal proline-rich region.
25148430 Mutations in the AIPL1 and RDH12 genes associated with leber congenital amaurosis in two Turkish families.
24664679 In this chapter, using results obtained from multiple lines of animal models, we discuss the role for AIPL1 in photoreceptors.
23418749 The unique proline-rich domain of AIPL1 is important for its chaperone function as its truncation severely affects the ability of AIPL1 to bind non-native proteins.
22347407 implicate FAT10 in retinal cell biology and Leber congenital amaurosis pathogenesis, and reveal a new role of AIPL1 in regulating the FAT10 pathway.
21900377 Patients with mutations in AIPL1 may present with Leber congenital amaurosis and residual ERGs (electroretinography) characterized by slow insensitive scotopic responses.
20801516 Observational study of genetic testing. (HuGE Navigator)
20702822 AIPL1-Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), unlike some other forms of LCA with equally severe visual disturbance, shows profound loss of foveal as well as extrafoveal photoreceptors.
