Sexual Dimorphism of Short-Wavelength Photoreceptors in the Small White Butterfly, Pieris rapae crucivora
TLDR
The eyes of the female small white butterfly, Pieris rapae crucivora, are furnished with three classes of short-wavelength photoreceptors, with sensitivity peaks in the ultraviolet (UV), violet, and blue (B) wavelength range, which are termed PrUV, PrV, and PrB.
Spectral heterogeneity of honeybee ommatidia
TLDR
The expression patterns of the three opsin mRNAs demonstrated that three distinct types ommatidia exist, refuting the common assumption that the o mmatidia composing the bee compound eye contain identical sets of spectral receptors.
A unique visual pigment expressed in green, red and deep-red receptors in the eye of the small white butterfly, Pieris rapae crucivora
TLDR
In situ hybridization of the opsin mRNA of the novel visual pigment (PrL) demonstrated that it is expressed in the two distal photoreceptor cells (R3 and R4) as well as in the proximal photoreceptors (R5–8) in all three types of ommatidia of the Pieris eye.
Relationship between expression of tight junction-related molecules and perturbed epidermal barrier function in UVB-irradiated hairless mice
TLDR
It appears that epidermal barrier recovery is accelerated by the increased production and dense localization of occludin in the cell–cell contact region of the stratum granulosum, which indicates tight junction-barrier function was perturbed by UVB irradiation.
Effect of RNA interference of tight junction-related molecules on intercellular barrier function in cultured human keratinocytes
TLDR
The results suggest that claudin-1 plays a crucial role in recruiting occludin to TJs, and that occlUDin is involved in intercellular barrier function.
