1.A.1.11.11
The Cav1.4 Ca2+ channel (gene CACNA1F). Mutations resulting in increased activity cause x-linked incomplete congenital stationary night blindness (CSNB2) (Hemara-Wahanui et al., 2005; Peloquin et al., 2007).  Aland Island eye disease (AIED), also known as Forsius-Eriksson syndrome, is an X-linked recessive retinal disease characterized by a combination of fundus hypopigmentation, decreased visual acuity, nystagmus, astigmatism, protan color vision defect, progressive myopia, and defective dark adaptation. Since the clinical picture of AIED is quite similar to CSNB2, these disorders are allelic or form a single entity. Thus, AIED is also caused by CACNA1F gene mutations (Jalkanen et al. 2007).
