FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the Rab3-interacting molecule (RIM)-binding protein family. Members of this protein family form part of the cytomatrix at the active zone (CAZ) complex and function as regulators of neurotransmitter release. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for targeted disruptions of this gene are viable and fertile. However, homozygotes for one allele display abnormal CNS synaptic transmission. Homozygotes for a second allele display retinal abnormalities and impaired vision. [provided by MGI curators]
