Kinetics of bleaching and regeneration of rhodopsin in abnormal (RCS) and normal albino rats in vivo.

1. Rhodopsin concentration has been measured by the method of densitometry in retinae of rats with inherited retinal dystrophy (RCS) raised in darkness and compared with that of normal rats similarly reared. 2. In both RCS and normal rats the fraction of rhodopsin bleached is always directly proportional to the photon content of the light, I.t, where I is… CONTINUE READING
