Neural retina-specific leucine zipper protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NRL gene.[1][2][3]

Function[edit]

This gene encodes a basic motif-leucine zipper transcription factor of the Maf subfamily. The encoded protein is conserved among vertebrates and is a critical intrinsic regulator of photoceptor development and function. Mutations in this gene have been associated with retinitis pigmentosa and retinal degenerative diseases.[3]
