In muscle cells, force development is controlled by Ca2+ ions, which are rapidly released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) during sarcolemmal depolarization. In addition to this synchronized spatially homogeneous calcium signal, localized quantal Ca2+ release events (sparks) have been recorded using laser scanning confocal fluorescence microscopy.(More)
The chicken retina contains five visual photoreceptor subtypes, based on the specific opsin gene they express. In addition to the central role they play in vision, some or all of these photoreceptors translate photoperiodic information into a day–night rhythm of melatonin production. This indolic hormone plays an important role in the photoperiodic(More)
