This gene encodes a phosphoprotein, which is located in the outer and inner segments of the rod cells in the retina. This protein may participate in the regulation of visual phototransduction or in the integration of photoreceptor metabolism. It modulates the phototransduction cascade by interacting with the beta and gamma subunits of the retinal G-protein transducin. This gene is a potential candidate gene for retinitis pigmentosa and Usher syndrome type II. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.

PDC involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways PDC participated on our site, such as Olfactory transduction, cyclic AMP biosynthesis, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with PDC were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
