Morphological, physiological, and biochemical changes in rhodopsin knockout mice.
Mutations in rod opsin, the visual pigment protein of rod photoreceptors, account for approximately 15% of all inherited human retinal degenerations. However, the physiological and molecular eventsExpand

Phototransduction in transgenic mice after targeted deletion of the rod transducin alpha -subunit.
Retinal photoreceptors use the heterotrimeric G protein transducin to couple rhodopsin to a biochemical cascade that underlies the electrical photoresponse. Several isoforms of each transducinExpand
