Dependence of receptor potential and redox state of mitochondrial cytochromes on oxygen fraction measured in the blowfly eye in vivo


1. The dependence of dark-adapted fly (Calliphora vicina) photoreceptors on oxygen was investigated by measuring the electroretinogram (ERG), the receptor potential, and the redox states of the mitochondrial cytochromes. The redox states were determined via reflection microspectrophotometry on white-eyed fly mutants. 2. The light sensitivity of the… (More)
