RPGRIP1L is a human gene.[1]


The protein encoded by this gene is localized to primary cilia and centrosomes in ciliated human epithelial kidney cells and retinal pigment epithelial cells . RPGRIP1L colocalized at the basal body-centrosome complex with the proteins NPHP4, NPHP6, and TUBG1.[2][3] Also, it can interact with MyosinVa [4]

Clinical significance

Mutations in the RPGRIP1L gene are associated with Joubert syndrome and Meckel syndrome which belong to a group of developmental autosomal recessive disorders that are associated with cilium dysfunction.[2] Mutations in this gene are also associated with nephronophthisis.[5] Copy number variation affecting the gene was associated with schizophrenia in one study.[6]
