Recoverin, belonging to a family of the neuronal calcium sensor (NCS) proteins, has a restricted expression in retinal photoreceptors or neurons or neuroendocrine cells. It has been suggested to play a role in light and dark adaptation by regulating rhodopsin phosphorylation. Recently, it has been found that autoantibodies against recoverin (24 kDa) have been strongly associated with cancer -associated retinopathy (CAR) syndrome, a paraneoplastic disease of the retina. But functions of recoverin in cancer cells remain unknown.
