Resum
Rhodopsin and cone opsins, the photosensitive pigments of the vertebrate retina are a distinct group of G-protein-coupled receptors which are covalently bound to a chromophore, 11-cis-retinal. These receptors play a central role in the visual phototransduction process mediating dim-light vision and colour vision respectively. The kinetics of the response of the rod photoreceptor rhodopsin and its related cone opsins is very different suggesting important differences in both inter and intramolecu...
