Background Information

RPE65(Retinal pigment epithelium-specific 65 kDa protein) is also named as retinoid isomerohydrolase with the calculated molecular weight og 61 kDa and belongs to the carotenoid oxygenase family. It is a microsomal protein with isomerase activity in the retinoid visual cycle that playing a role in the isomerisation of all-trans (vitamin A) to 11-cis retinal, the chromophore of the visual pigments. It also might be involved in retinoid uptake of keratinocytes.
