Recently a new gene called RPGR (retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator) was isolated in Xp21.1 and found to be mutated in patients with RP3 type X-linked retinitis pigmentosa. Two new mutations, the first a single base pair deletion and the other a two base pairs deletion, have been found in one Spanish and one Italian family.
