congenital stationary night blindness type 1D
congenital stationary night blindness type 1DAn autosomal recessive form (OMIM:613830) of congenital stationary night blindness, which is characterised by a Riggs type of electroretinogram (proportionally reduced a- and b-waves). Patients have normal range of visual acuity without myopia or nystagmus.
Caused by defects of SLC24A1, which encodes a potassium-dependent sodium/calcium exchanger, a critical component of the visual transduction cascade that controls the calcium concentration of outer segments during light and darkness, acting on retinal rod and cone photoreceptors.
