We have examined the colour vision of 43 female subjects in the age range 30-59 yr of whom 31 were obligate carriers of various forms of colour deficiency and the rest were women who had no known colour-deficient relatives. In the case of all the carriers we established the phenotypes of their colour-deficient sons. As a group, carriers made significantly more errors on the Ishihara plates and showed enlarged matching ranges on the Nagel anomaloscope, but we could not replicate earlier reports… Expand

TLDR
Generally, deutan carriers performed worse than protan carriers and normal females on six out of the seven tests, but the proportion of carriers that made errors on pseudo-isochromatic tests increased with age. Expand
The dimensionality of color vision in carriers of anomalous trichromacy.
TLDR
It is suggested that most carriers of color anomaly do not exhibit four-dimensional color vision, and so it is believed that anomalous trichromacy is unlikely to be maintained by an advantage to the carriers in discriminating colors. Expand
Normality of colour vision in a compound heterozygous female carrying protan and deutan defects
TLDR
Questions remain about whether the colour vision capacity of women with inherited red‐green colour vision defects is comparable to that of ‘normal’ trichromats. Expand
Molecular genetics of colour vision deficiencies

TLDR
A common single amino acid polymorphism (serine or alanine) at position 180 of the Lpigment plays an important role both in variation in normal colour vision and in the severity of colour vision defects. Expand
Processing of color signals in female carriers of color vision deficiency.
TLDR
The increased sensitivity of PA carriers at lower light levels is consistent with the pooling of signals from the hybrid M' and the M cones and the subsequent stronger inhibition of the rods, and suggests that signals from hybrid photopigments may pool preferentially with the spectrally closest "normal" pigments. Expand
Colour vision deficiency
TLDR
Although visual aids may be of benefit to those with colour vision deficiency when performing certain tasks, the evidence suggests that they do not enable wearers to obtain normal colour discrimination. Expand
Diagnosing protan heterozygosity using the Medmont C‐100 colour vision test
TLDR
The Medmont C‐100 colour vision test measures relative spectral sensitivity using flicker photometry to differentiate protans and deutans and should be able to diagnose Schmidt's sign. Expand
Rayleigh matches in carriers of inherited color vision defects: The contribution from the third L/M photopigment
TLDR
A model considered how the signal from the third pigment pools with signals from the normal's two pigments in the L/M range and showed that differences in Rayleigh matches among carriers can be due to individual differences in the number of the third type of L/ M cone, and the spectral sensitivity peak and optical density of theThird L/m pigment. Expand
Sex-related differences in chromatic sensitivity
TLDR
Assessing the performance of 150 males and 150 females on the color assessment and diagnosis (CAD) test found differences between males and females in red-green (RG) color discrimination may be related to the heterozygosity in X-linked cone photo pigment expression common among females. Expand
Color vision in two observers with highly biased LWS/MWS cone ratios
TLDR
Two sisters, heterozygous carriers for congenital X-linked protanopia, were diagnosed as normal trichromats by the Rayleigh match on the anomaloscope and the data indicate that normal color vision can occur even when the LWS/MWS cone ratio is quite abnormal. Expand

Polymorphism of the long-wavelength cone in normal human colour vision
TLDR
Evidence for the existence of two different long-wavelength cone mechanisms in normal humans is reported and the different patterns of colour matches made by male and female subjects indicate these two mechanisms are inherited as an X-chromosome linked trait. Expand
[Evidence for reduced colour vision in carriers of congenital colour vision deficiencies (author's transl)].
TLDR
The ability to recognize small spots of coloured light in parafoveal regions of the retina was investigated in women heterozygous for protanopia, deuteranopia and normal subjects, finding the ability to differentiate colours varied from point to point within the retina. Expand
Differences in the responses of heterozygous carriers of colorblindness and normal controls to briefly presented stimuli
TLDR
Both experiments support the Lyon hypothesis in that female carriers were found to have more difficulty in perceiving patterns of colored stimuli than did control subjects, and they suggest that the amount of time that a carrier has to scan colored stimuli plays an important role in her ability to accurately perceive them.

TLDR
The relationship between color discrimination, sex, and age is studied by giving the 100-Hue Test and some 500 eyes affected by different diseases are examined by means of a diagnostic set. Expand
A HUE DISCRIMINATION DEFECT IN SO-CALLED NORMAL CARRIERS OF COLOR VISION DEFECTS.
TLDR
The Farnsworth-Munsell 100-hue test was used to study 13 carriers of color vision defects and the status of carriers of sex-linked recessive defects is best explained by the recently advanced single X chromosome inactivation hypothesis. Expand
Red-Light Thresholds in Heterozygote Carriers of Protanopia: Genetic Implications
TLDR
Elevated thresholds were found in all retinal areas tested in protanopic males, at the fovea in all carriers, and in some peripheral retinal Areas in two carriers. Expand
Different patterns of X inactivation in MZ twins discordant for red-green color-vision deficiency.
TLDR
Evidence is given for X inactivation of the color-vision locus and another MZ twin pair with markedly different X-inactivation patterns for X-linked traits is added. Expand
Genetics of Congenital Colour Deficiencies
TLDR
There is a fundamental difference between the types of red-green blindness and congenital achromatopsia, which are transmitted by a recessive X-linked mode of inheritance and the sensory mechanisms are also fundamentally different. Expand
Heterochromatic modulation photometry in heterozygous carriers of congenital color defects
Heterochromatic modulation photometry (HMP) was used to look for evidence of inhomogeneities in foveal cone ratios for heterozygous carriers of X-linked congenital color defects. Critical flickerExpand
Variations of colour vision in a New World primate can be explained by polymorphism of retinal photopigments
TLDR
Good quantitative agreement was found when the microspectrophoto-metrically measured absorbance spectra were used to predict the behavioural sensitivity of individual animals to long wavelengths and suggests that the behavioural variation arises from variation in the retinal photopigments. Expand
