The following OPN1LW gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the OPN1LW gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This gene encodes for a light absorbing visual pigment of
the opsin gene family. The encoded protein is called red cone
photopigment or long-wavelength sensitive opsin. Opsins are
G-protein coupled receptors with seven transmembrane domains, an
N-terminal extracellular domain, and a C-terminal cytoplasmic
domain. This gene and the medium-wavelength opsin gene are tandemly
arrayed on the X chromosome and frequent unequal recombination and
gene conversion may occur between these sequences. X chromosomes
may have fusions of the medium- and long-wavelength opsin genes or
may have more than one copy of these genes. Defects in this gene
are the cause of partial, protanopic colorblindness. [provided by
