Two isoforms of the REP gene have been isolated, REP-1 and REP-2. The REP-1 gene, located on chromosome Xq21, is prone to a wide variety of mutations, including nonsense, frameshift and splice-site mutations and deletions. In patients with choroideraemia (CHM), mutations in the REP-1 gene result in progressive dystrophy of the choroid, retinal pigment epithelium and retina. CHM is an X-linked hereditary eye disease that leads to blindness later in life. REP-2 is able to bind to several Rab proteins with the same affinity as REP-1 and may act a substitute for REP-1 to prevent widespread tissue abnormalities in patients with CHM.
