To elucidate the molecular mechanisms of vertebrate color vision, it is essential to establish associations between amino acid substitutions and the directions of lambda max shifts of visual pigments. In this way, we can identify critical amino acid changes that may be responsible for lambda max shifts of visual pigments. In this process, we may consider only highly conserved residues, simply because the evolutionary conservation often implies functional importance. Using such an "evolutionary… CONTINUE READING
