Cure Research for Macular dystrophy, vitelliform

Cure Research discussion for Macular dystrophy, vitelliform:

Little is known about the protein product of the VMD2 gene, although its function seems to be restricted to an area of the eye known as the retinal pigment epithelium. There is speculation that the protein encoded by VMD2 may be involved in the removal and/or processing of photoreceptor components. Determination of the VMD2 protein function and development of an animal model will be the next crucial steps toward a better understanding of Best disease.
