In vertebrate rods, dark and light conditions produce changes in guanosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) and calcium (Ca(2+) ) levels, which are regulated by the opposing function of several proteins. During the recovery of a bright flash, guanylate cyclase (GUCY) helps raise cGMP to levels that open cGMP-gated calcium sodium channels (CNG) to increase(More)

Unfortunately, VGB treatment is also associated with the highest frequencies of peripheral visual field constriction of any of the antiepileptic drugs and the mechanisms that lead to these visual field defects are uncertain.(More)
