Tautomeric Forms of Metarhodopsin
Light isomerizes the chromophore of rhodopsin, 11-cis retinal (formerly retinene), to the all-trans configuration. This introduces a succession of unstable intermediates—pre-lumirhodopsin,Expand

THE MOLAR EXTINCTION OF RHODOPSIN
  • G. Wald, P. Brown
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • The Journal of general physiology
  • 20 November 1953
The molar extinction of rhodopsin is 40,600 cm.2 per mole equivalent of retinene; i.e., this is the extinction of a solution of rhodopsin which is produced by, or yields on bleaching, a molarExpand

Visual Pigments in Single Rods and Cones of the Human Retina
Difference spectra of the visual pigments have been measured in single rods and cones of a parafoveal region of the human retina. Rods display an absorption maximum (λmax) at about 505 m� associatedExpand

The change in refractive power of the human eye in dim and bright light.
  • G. Wald, D. Griffin
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Journal of the Optical Society of America
  • 1 May 1947
It has been reported that the human eye behaves as though relatively short-sighted in dim light. Observers tend to compensate for this change by setting optical instruments more negatively in dimExpand

Rhodopsin and Porphyropsin Fields In the Adult Bullfrog Retina
Though it had been supposed earlier that the bullfrog undergoes a virtually complete metamorphosis of visual systems from vitamin A2 and porphyropsin in the tadpole to vitamin A1 and rhodopsin in theExpand

THE DARK ADAPTATION OF RETINAL FIELDS OF DIFFERENT SIZE AND LOCATION
The decrease in threshold shown by the eye during dark adaptation proceeds in two steps. The first is rapid, short in duration, and small in extent. The second is slow, prolonged, and large. TheExpand

  • The Journal of general physiology
  • 1 February 1968
Extraction of two visual pigments from crayfish eyes prompted an electrophysiological examination of the role of visual pigments in the compound eyes of six arthropods. The intact animals were used;Expand
