Rhodopsin-regulated Insulin Receptor Signaling Pathway in Rod Photoreceptor Neurons

Abstract

The retina is an integral part of the central nervous system and retinal cells are known to express insulin receptors (IR), although their function is not known. This article describes recent studies that link the photoactivation of rhodopsin to tyrosine phosphorylation of the IR and subsequent activation of phosphoinositide 3-kinase, a neuron survival… (More)
