Color vision is supported by retinal cone photoreceptors that, in most mammals, express two photopigments sensitive to short (S-opsin) or middle (M-opsin) wavelengths. Expression of the Opn1sw and Opn1mw genes, encoding S-opsin and M-opsin, respectively, is under the control of nuclear receptors, including thyroid hormone receptor beta2 (TRbeta2), retinoid X receptor gamma (RXRgamma), and RORbeta, a member of the retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptor (ROR) family. We now demonstrate… CONTINUE READING
