Alterations in the photoactivation pathway of rhodopsin mutants associated with retinitis pigmentosa Bosch Presegué, Laia; Ramon Portés, Eva; Toledo, Darwin; Cordomí Montoya, Arnau; Garriga Solé, Pere (2011-05)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThe visual photoreceptor rhodopsin undergoes a series of conformational changes upon light activation, eventually leading to the active metarhodopsin II conformation, which is able to bind and activate the G-protein, transducin. ...
Hydrophobic amino acids at the cytoplasmic ends of helices 3 and 6 of rhodopsin conjointly modulate transducin activation Bosch Presegué, Laia; Iarriccio Silva, Laura; Aguila Cerda, Mónica; Toledo, Darwin; Ramon Portés, Eva; Cordomí Montoya, Arnau; Garriga Solé, Pere (2011-02-15)
Restricted access - publisher's policyRhodopsin is the visual photoreceptor responsible for dim light vision. This receptor is located in the rod cell of the retina and is a prototypical member of the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily. The structural ...
