Summation

Interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein (RBP3) is the major soluble protein in the interphotoreceptor matrix (IPM) (Liou et al. 1989, Fong & Bridges 1988). It is thought to shuttle 11-cis-retinal (11cRAL) between retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and photoreceptor outer segments during the visual cycle but the mechanism is poorly understood (Gonzalez-Fernandez & Ghosh 2008). It is assumed cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein (RLBP1) must dissociate from 11cRAL before 11cRAL is transported as RLBP1 is not present in photoreceptor cells.
