The eye photoreceptor protein rhodopsin. Structural implications for retinal disease.

Abstract

Rhodopsin is the membrane receptor responsible for photoreception in the vertebrate retina. Its characteristic seven-transmembrane helical structural motif is today widely recognised as a paradigm in signal transduction. Rhodopsin and the phototransduction system are frequently used as structural and mechanistic models for the G-protein coupled receptor… (More)
