Circadian entrainment to red light in Drosophila: requirement of Rhodopsin 1 and Rhodopsin 6.

Abstract

Like most other insects, Drosophila visual system is sensitive to the spectrum of light from ultraviolet to green but is insensitive to red light. The circadian rhythms of Drosophila, however, can be entrained by red light through unknown mechanisms. Here, we discovered the corresponding organ and photopigments responsible for the circadian entrainment of… (More)
