Two different visual pigments in one retinal cone cell
The retina of the mouse, rabbit, and guinea pig is divided into a superior area dominated by green-sensitive (M) cones and an inferior area in which cones possess practically only shortExpand

Nonvisual photoreceptors of the deep brain, pineal organs and retina.
The role of the nonvisual photoreception is to synchronise periodic functions of living organisms to the environmental light periods in order to help survival of various species in differentExpand

Two cone types of rat retina detected by anti-visual pigment antibodies.
The presence of two distinct cone types was demonstrated in the retina of the rat using two cone-specific monoclonal anti-visual pigment antibodies. Cones labelled by antibody COS-1 constituted theExpand

The photoreceptors and visual pigments of the garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis): a microspectrophotometric, scanning electron microscopic and immunocytochemical study
Abstract Scanning electron microscopy, immunocytochemistry, and single cell microspectrophotometry were employed to characterize the photoreceptors and visual pigments in the retina of the garterExpand

Identification of the blue‐sensitive cones in the mammalian retina by anti‐visual pigment antibody
Monoclonal antibodies to visual pigments produced in our laboratory were applied to analyze the distribution of color‐specific photoreceptor cells in the retina (photoreceptor mosaic). WeExpand

Spatial and temporal differences between the expression of short‐ and middle‐wave sensitive cone pigments in the mouse retina: A developmental study
In an earlier study we found a topographic separation of middlewave‐sensitive (M) and shortwave‐sensitive (S) cones in the adult mouse retina. In the present study we investigated the development ofExpand

Photoreceptor distribution in the retinas of subprimate mammals.
Relevant data on the distribution of color cones are summarized, with special emphasis on the marked dorsoventral asymmetries observed in a number of mammalian species. In addition, an overview isExpand

Distribution of cone photoreceptors in the mammalian retina
The retina of mammals contains various amounts of cone photoreceptors that are relatively evenly distributed and display a radially or horizontally oriented area of peak density. In most mammalianExpand

Microspectrophotometric and immunocytochemical identification of ultraviolet photoreceptors in geckos.
Retinas of the nocturnal geckos, Hemidactylus turcicus, Hemidactylus garnotii, and Teratoscincus scincus, were studied with microspectrophotometry and immunocytochemistry against various visualExpand

Visual pigment coexpression in all cones of two rodents, the Siberian hamster, and the pouched mouse.
PURPOSE To decide whether the identical topography of short- and middle-wavelength cone photoreceptors in two species of rodents reflects the presence of both opsins in all cone cells. METHODSExpand
