Anti-rhodopsin monoclonal antibodies of defined specificity: Characterization and application
A panel of anti-bovine rhodopsin monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) of defined site-specificity has been prepared and used for functional and topographic studies of rhodopsins. In order to select theseExpand

Rhodopsin C terminus, the site of mutations causing retinal disease, regulates trafficking by binding to ADP-ribosylation factor 4 (ARF4).
The maintenance of photoreceptor cell polarity is compromised by the rhodopsin mutations causing the human disease autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa. The severe form mutations occur in theExpand

Three cytoplasmic loops of rhodopsin interact with transducin.
Rhodopsin is a member of an ancient class of receptors that transduce signals through their interaction with guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins). We have mapped the sites of interactionExpand

Arrangement of rhodopsin transmembrane α-helices
Rhodopsins, the photoreceptors in rod cells, are G-protein-coupled receptors with seven hydrophobic segments containing characteristic conserved sequence patterns that define a large family,. MembersExpand

Site of G protein binding to rhodopsin mapped with synthetic peptides from the alpha subunit.
The interaction between receptors and guanine nucleotide binding (G) proteins leads to G protein activation and subsequent regulation of effector enzymes. The molecular basis of receptor-G proteinExpand

Regulation of sorting and post-Golgi trafficking of rhodopsin by its C-terminal sequence QVS(A)PA.
Several mutations that cause severe forms of the human disease autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa cluster in the C-terminal region of rhodopsin. Recent studies have implicated the C-terminalExpand

Structural prediction of membrane-bound proteins.
A prediction algorithm based on physical characteristics of the twenty amino acids and refined by comparison to the proposed bacteriorhodopsin structure was devised to delineate likelyExpand

Crystals of native and modified bovine rhodopsins and their heavy atom derivatives.
Rhodopsin, the pigment protein responsible for dim-light vision, is a G protein-coupled receptor that converts light absorption into the activation of a G protein, transducin, to initiate the visualExpand

The structure of bovine rhodopsin
We have isolated 16 peptides from a cyanogen bromide digest of rhodopsin. These cyanogen bromide peptides account for the complete composition of the protein. Methionine-containing peptides fromExpand
