Microspectrophotometry ofDrosophila visual pigments: Determinations of conversion efficiency in R1–6 receptors


We used microspectrophotometry, together with some associated electrophysiological measurements, to characterize the photopigments of R1–6 receptors in living, white-eyedDrosophila. Measurements were from the deep pseudopupil, an optical visualization of photopigment-containing rhabdomeres. Transmission changes associated with photointerconversion of… (More)
