Once NRPE is "flipped" to the cytoplasmic side of disc membranes by the ABC transporter ABCA4, it can dissociate to all-trans-retinal (atRAL) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE). atRAL is thus released to re-enter the retinoid cycle to reform the visual chromophore 11-cis-retinal (11cRAL) (Tsybovsky et al. 2010).
