A cDNA full length encoding a putative ultraviolet (UV)-sensitive visual pigment of goldfish was isolated. The deduced amino acid sequence shows 64% identity to those of human blue and chicken violet, and less identity (40-49%) to those of other vertebrate visual pigment. The mRNA is localized in the miniature short single cone cells, which are known to have a sensitivity maximum in the near UV-region.
