Opsin expression is extremely suppressed by carotenoid deprivation in Drosophila. Carotenoid replacement in deprived flies promotes the recovery of visual pigment with an increase in opsin, as well as the chromophore 11-cis-3-hydroxyretinal. Here, we show that opsin mRNA and opsin peptide in an intermediate step of posttranslational processing were present(More)
PURPOSE Blockade of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)(2A) receptors reportedly mediates or modulates the ability of isoflurane to produce immobility during noxious stimulation and would thereby influence MAC (the minimum alveolar concentration required to suppress movement in response to noxious stimulation in 50% of subjects). However, no data are yet available(More)
