To quantify the rate at which light in a ganzfeld produces photoisomerizations in mouse rods in situ, we measured the rate of rhodopsin bleaching in eyes of recently euthanized mice with fully dilated pupils. The amount of rhodopsin declined as a first-order (exponential) function of the duration of the exposure at the luminance of 920 scot cd m(-2): the rate constants of bleaching were 8.3 x 10(-6) and 2.8 x 10(-5) s(-1) (scot cd(-1)m2)(-1) for C57B1/6 and 129P3/J mice, respectively. When the… CONTINUE READING
