Because almost everything we know about Drosophila phototransduction has come from studies based on genetic approaches, this review begins with a discussion of genetic approaches. We then present a brief overview of Drosophila phototransduction (section on Drosophila phototransduction: an overview) followed by a more detailed treatment of individual components of the transduction machinery (section on Components of the phototransduction machinery). Discussion of transduction mechanisms is… CONTINUE READING
