Roles and interactions of usher 1 proteins in the outer retina.

Our studies demonstrate that harmonin and myosin VIIa are not localized in the same compartments in the mouse and human retinas, indicating that they do not interact in this organ, contrary to what has been shown in the inner ear. The enrichment of harmonin in the photoreceptor synapses indicates that this protein may form multiple complexes with others to maintain the synaptic structure or to mediate in the release of synaptic vesicles.[1]
