PEX5-related protein, Peroxisomal Biogenesis Factor 5 Like, TPR-containing Rab8b-interacting protein or TRIP8b is encoded by the gene Pex5l. It is a member of the peroxisomal targeting signal receptor family. TRIP8b is a cytoplasmic accessory subunit of hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels. TRIP8b interacts with the carboxyl-terminal region of HCN channels and regulates their cell-surface expression to the dendrites in many types of neurons. TRIP8b plays a role in regulation of HCN channel cyclic nucleotide kinetics. TRIP8b is expressed in the brain. Diseases associated with PEX5L include Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata, Type 5 and Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata, Type 2.
