MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This protein belongs to the lipocalin family and is the specific carrier for retinol (vitamin A alcohol) in the blood. It delivers retinol from the liver stores to the peripheral tissues. In plasma, the RBP-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin which prevents its loss by filtration through the kidney glomeruli. A deficiency of vitamin A blocks secretion of the binding protein posttranslationally and results in defective delivery and supply to the epidermal cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a null allele show abnormal retinal function and retinol level, delayed heart trabeculation, and increased myocyte proliferation and fibronectin deposition in cardiac jelly and nascent valves. Homozygotes for another null allele show testicular defects on a vitamin A-deficient diet. [provided by MGI curators]
