Retinal Cone Photoreceptor Cells
Photosensitive afferent neurons located primarily within the FOVEA CENTRALIS of the MACULA LUTEA. There are three major types of cone cells (red, blue, and green) whose photopigments have different spectral sensitivity curves. Retinal cone cells operate in daylight vision (at photopic intensities) providing color recognition and central visual acuity.
Drug Inverse Agonism
Retinal Rod Photoreceptor Cells
Photosensitive afferent neurons located in the peripheral retina, with their density increases radially away from the FOVEA CENTRALIS. Being much more sensitive to light than the RETINAL CONE CELLS, the rod cells are responsible for twilight vision (at scotopic intensities) as well as peripheral vision, but provide no color discrimination.
Photoreceptor Cells, Vertebrate
A heterotrimeric GTP-binding protein that mediates the light activation signal from photolyzed rhodopsin to cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase and is pivotal in the visual excitation process. Activation of rhodopsin on the outer membrane of rod and cone cells causes GTP to bind to transducin followed by dissociation of the alpha subunit-GTP complex from the beta/gamma subunits of transducin. The alpha subunit-GTP complex activates the cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase which catalyzes the hydrolysis of cyclic GMP to 5'-GMP. This leads to closure of the sodium and calcium channels and therefore hyperpolarization of the rod cells. EC 3.6.1.-.
A carotenoid constituent of visual pigments. It is the oxidized form of retinol which functions as the active component of the visual cycle. It is bound to the protein opsin forming the complex rhodopsin. When stimulated by visible light, the retinal component of the rhodopsin complex undergoes isomerization at the 11-position of the double bond to the cis-form; this is reversed in "dark" reactions to return to the native trans-configuration.
Photosensitive protein complexes of varied light absorption properties which are expressed in the PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They are OPSINS conjugated with VITAMIN A-based chromophores. Chromophores capture photons of light, leading to the activation of opsins and a biochemical cascade that ultimately excites the photoreceptor cells.
The ten-layered nervous tissue membrane of the eye. It is continuous with the OPTIC NERVE and receives images of external objects and transmits visual impulses to the brain. Its outer surface is in contact with the CHOROID and the inner surface with the VITREOUS BODY. The outer-most layer is pigmented, whereas the inner nine layers are transparent.
Analytical technique for studying substances present at enzyme concentrations in single cells, in situ, by measuring light absorption. Light from a tungsten strip lamp or xenon arc dispersed by a grating monochromator illuminates the optical system of a microscope. The absorbance of light is measured (in nanometers) by comparing the difference between the image of the sample and a reference image.
Specialized cells that detect and transduce light. They are classified into two types based on their light reception structure, the ciliary photoreceptors and the rhabdomeric photoreceptors with MICROVILLI. Ciliary photoreceptor cells use OPSINS that activate a PHOSPHODIESTERASE phosphodiesterase cascade. Rhabdomeric photoreceptor cells use opsins that activate a PHOSPHOLIPASE C cascade.

Color Vision Defects
Defects of color vision are mainly hereditary traits but can be secondary to acquired or developmental abnormalities in the CONES (RETINA). Severity of hereditary defects of color vision depends on the degree of mutation of the ROD OPSINS genes (on X CHROMOSOME and CHROMOSOME 3) that code the photopigments for red, green and blue.
Medical Laboratory Science
Mental processing of chromatic signals (COLOR VISION) from the eye by the VISUAL CORTEX where they are converted into symbolic representations. Color perception involves numerous neurons, and is influenced not only by the distribution of wavelengths from the viewed object, but also by its background color and brightness contrast at its boundary.

Topographical characterization of cone photoreceptors and the area centralis of the canine retina. (4/56)PURPOSE: The canine is an important large animal model of human retinal genetic disorders. Studies of ganglion cell distribution in the canine retina have identified a visual streak of high density superior to the optic disc with a temporal area of peak density known as the area centralis. The topography of cone photoreceptors in the canine retina has not been characterized in detail, and in contrast to the macula in humans, the position of the area centralis in dogs is not apparent on clinical funduscopic examination. The purpose of this study was to define the location of the area centralis in the dog and to characterize in detail the topography of rod and cone photoreceptors within the area centralis. This will facilitate the investigation and treatment of retinal disease in the canine. METHODS: We used peanut agglutinin, which labels cone matrix sheaths and antibodies against long/medium wavelength (L/M)- and short wavelength (S)-cone opsins, to stain retinal cryosections and flatmounts from beagle dogs. Retinas were imaged using differential interference contrast imaging, fluorescence, and confocal microscopy. Within the area centralis, rod and cone size and density were quantified, and the proportion of cones expressing each cone opsin subtype was calculated. Using a grid pattern of sampling in 9 retinal flatmounts, we investigated the distribution of cones throughout the retina to predict the location of the area centralis. RESULTS: We identified the area centralis as the site of maximal density of rod and cone photoreceptor cells, which have a smaller inner segment cross-sectional area in this region. L/M opsin was expressed by the majority of cones in the retina, both within the area centralis and in the peripheral retina. Using the mean of cone density distribution from 9 retinas, we calculated that the area centralis is likely to be centered at a point 1.5 mm temporal and 0.6 mm superior to the optic disc. For clinical funduscopic examination, this represents 1.2 disc diameters temporal and 0.4 disc diameters superior to the optic disc. CONCLUSIONS: We have described the distribution of rods and cone subtypes within the canine retina and calculated a predictable location for the area centralis. These findings will facilitate the characterization and treatment of cone photoreceptor dystrophies in the dog. (+info)

The purpose of this study was to define the mechanisms regulating the spatial patterning of cone opsin expression. By analyzing knock-outs for bone morphogenetic ...
Gene therapy rescues nerve degeneration in diabetic rats and rabbits
Researchers have used gene therapy to halt and reverse nerve degeneration in diabetic rats and rabbits. Introducing blood vessel-promoting genes into diabetic animals has reversed nerve damage caused by poor circulation. The team, led by Jeffrey Isner of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, injected the VEGF-1 and VEGF-2 genes into the leg muscles of diabetic rats and rabbits to stimulate blood vessel growth around degenerating nerves.. Eight weeks after the rabbits had received the VEGF gene the researchers found that the number of blood vessels surrounding a nerve in the leg rose from 16 to 49, which was similar to non-diabetic animals. The results were similar with both forms of VEGF. The increase in blood vessel number was also accompanied by the restoration of motor and sensory nerve functions. Measurements of electrical activity within the nerves indicated that they were conducting signals in a manner similar to healthy animals.. Comparable results were seen in ...
Cardiac AAV9-S100A1 Gene Therapy Rescues Post-Ischemic Heart Failure in a Preclinical Large Animal Model | Science...
As a prerequisite for clinical application, we determined the long-term therapeutic effectiveness and safety of adeno-associated virus (AAV)-S100A1 gene therapy in a preclinical large animal model of heart failure. S100A1, a positive inotropic regulator of myocardial contractility, becomes depleted in failing cardiomyocytes in humans and animals, and myocardial-targeted S100A1 gene transfer rescues cardiac contractile function by restoring sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium (Ca2+) handling in acutely and chronically failing hearts in small animal models. We induced heart failure in domestic pigs by balloon occlusion of the left circumflex coronary artery, resulting in myocardial infarction. After 2 weeks, when the pigs displayed significant left ventricular contractile dysfunction, we administered, by retrograde coronary venous delivery, AAV serotype 9 (AAV9)-S100A1 to the left ventricular, non-infarcted myocardium. AAV9-luciferase and saline treatment served as control. At 14 weeks, both control ...

Visual sensitivities tuned by heterochronic shifts in opsin gene expression
Background Cichlid fishes have radiated into hundreds of species in the Great Lakes of Africa. Brightly colored males display on leks and vie to be chosen by females as mates. Strong discrimination by females causes differential male mating success, rapid evolution of male color patterns and, possibly, speciation. In addition to differences in color pattern, Lake Malawi cichlids also show some of the largest known shifts in visual sensitivity among closely related species. These shifts result from modulated expression of seven cone opsin genes. However, the mechanisms for this modulated expression are unknown. Results In this work, we ask whether these differences might result from changes in developmental patterning of cone opsin genes. To test this, we compared the developmental pattern of cone opsin gene expression of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, with that of several cichlid species from Lake Malawi. In tilapia, quantitative polymerase chain reaction showed that opsin gene ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Molecular adaptations of rod opsins in deep-sea fish. AU - Hunt, D. M.. AU - Hope, A. J.. AU - Partridge, J. C.. PY - 1996/2/15. Y1 - 1996/2/15. N2 - Purpose. The physical environment of the deep-sea places constraints on the vision of deep-sea fish. The object of the study was to investigate adaptations of visual pigments to light quality and high pressure. Methods. The four species studied, Hoplostethus mediterraneus, Catetyx laticeps, Gonostoma elongatum, and Histiobranchus batbybius, are recovered from depths ranging from 500 to almost 5000m. The rod opsin gene was PCR-ampIified and sequenced. Results. λmax values for the rod pigment of the four deep-sea species varies from 480nm in H. mediterraneus and G. elongatum to 468nm in C. laticeps. Six candidate amino acid substitutions for spectral tuning are identified; all are located on the inner face of the chromphore-binding pocket formed by the seven transmembrane α-helices and involve either a charge change or gain/loss of ...
talks.cam : Life in the dark: can deep sea fishes see colours?
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Olivia Tidswell.. Vision in vertebrates is based on different visual proteins (opsins) in the cone and rod cells in the retina. Under dim-light conditions, mostly rod receptors are thought to mediate rather color-blind vision by expression of a single rod opsin gene (RH1), while the cones enable colour vision in substantial light intensity. By inspecting 101 fish genomes, we found that three teleost lineages from the dim-light environment of the deep sea have independently expanded their RH1 gene repertoire via gene duplication and subsequent functional diversification. An extreme case of one species stands out with a total of 40 opsin genes in its genome (2 cone + 38 rod opsins), and has the highest number of visual opsins known for animals so far. We found that 14 RH1 genes are simultaneously expressed in the morphologically unique retina this species. The in-vitro synthesis and functional prediction revealed that these genes encode for ...
Type 3 Deiodinase, a Thyroid-Hormone-Inactivating Enzyme, Controls Survival and Maturation of Cone Photoreceptors | Journal of...
In the absence of TRβ2 or of both TRβ2 and type 3 deiodinase, mice produce normal numbers of functional cones that express S opsin but little or no M opsin. In both Thrb2−/− and Dio3−/−;Thrb2−/− mice, individual cones have essentially normal physiological properties with normal activation and inactivation kinetics. One may therefore speculate that the response of cones to T3, mediated by Thrb and Dio3 genes, represents an adaptation acquired by an existing cone developmental program with the benefit of enhancing visual capability. Thus, mice lacking TRβ2 possess a basic visual system based on rods for dim light vision and S cones for daylight vision. TRβ2 promotes M opsin expression, thereby enhancing daylight vision in the visible region of the spectrum and color discrimination. However, TRβ2 also confers the disadvantage of susceptibility to T3-mediated cone death such that the accompanying protection given by type 3 deiodinase is essential for enhancing visual ...

Program Faculty | Neuroscience and Physiology | SUNY Upstate Medical University
Photopic vision is mediated by cone cells, which express a protein, calleda color or cone opsin, that determines its spectral sensitivity and response characteristics. The molecular mechanisms that produce the unique properties of cone pigments are not understood. The overall goal of this project is to understand the molecular mechanisms of 11-cis-retinal/short wavelength opsin interactions that bring about their unique absorbance properties and photobleaching/ regeneration behavior; in particular, to determine how specific amino acid residues contribute to spectral tuning and phototransduction. We are biochemically characterizing the bleaching /regeneration pathway and studying the physiologically active conformation of short wavelength cone opsins using low temperature and time-resolved (>10 ns) UV-visible spectroscopy. We are investigating the role specific amino acids in violet cone opsin have in retinal interactions, photobleaching and regeneration using molecular models coupled to ...
Study of Cone Pigment Function With a Transgenic Mouse Model | IOVS | ARVO Journals
Abstract: : Purpose: We have produced transgenic mice expressing human red-cone opsin in their rods. These mice may allow us to address the role of visual pigment in the functional differences between rods and cones. They may also allow us to examine the relationship between opsin activity and photoreceptor degeneration in rods. Methods: A 4.4-kb mouse rhodopsin promoter was fused to a human red-cone opsin cDNA to direct specific transgene expression. After positive lines were established, transgene expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry. These mice were further bred into heterozygous (R+/-) and homozygous (R-/-) rhodopsin knock-out backgrounds by mating with rhodopsin -/- mice. Results: The cone opsin was expressed specifically in mouse rod outer segments (ROSs), as indicated by immunostaining with an antibody against human red-cone opsin. The ROS labeling was intense and uniform in retinal cross-sections. Double-immunostaining with this antibody and one against rhodopsin (1D4) showed ...
OSA | Directional imaging of the retinal cone mosaic
We describe a near-IR scanning laser ophthalmoscope that allows the retinal cone mosaic to be imaged in the human eye in vivo without the use of wave-front correction techniques. The method takes advantage of the highly directional quality of cone photoreceptors that permits efficient coupling of light to individual cones and subsequent detection of most directional components of the backscattered light produced by the light-guiding effect of the cones. We discuss details of the system and describe cone-mosaic images obtained under different conditions.. © 2004 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...
Molecular evidence for dim-light vision in the last common ancestor of the vertebrates - Maynooth University ePrints and...
Animal vision is mediated through pigments belonging exclusively to the opsin family. These are members of the G-protein-coupled receptor family that bind retinal . Based on function and phylogenetic relationship, vertebrate visual opsins can be clustered in five groups: Rhod photoreceptors (Rh1), Rh1-like (Rh2), Short Wave Sensitive (SWS1), SWS1-like (SWS2), and Long (LWS) or Medium (MWS) Wave Length Sensitive (LWS/MWS). Rh1 is used for seeing under dim light conditions (scotopic vision), while the others permit full colour (photopic) vision in bright light 2, 3, 4 and 5. Opsins have diversified by a series of gene duplications, and the inferred order of these duplications indicates that photopic vision predated scotopic vision in vertebrates 2, 3, 4 and 5. ...

Rescue of M-cone Function in Aged Opn1mw−/− Mice, a Model for Late-Stage Blue Cone Monochromacy | IOVS | ARVO Journals
In mice, most cones coexpress M- and S-opsin, but in a dorsal-ventral gradient, with M-opsin dominant in the dorsal retina and S-opsin dominant in the ventral.14-18 For simplicity, in this article we used the terminology M-cones for dorsal cones predominately expressing M-opsin and no S-opsin was detected by immunohistochemistry, and S-cones for ventral cones predominately expressing S-opsin and no M-opsin was detected by immunohistochemistry. Previously we showed that the dorsal M-cones of Opn1mw−/− mice do not form cone outer segments, very much like the remaining cones in human BCM fovea with shortened outer segments; therefore, Opn1mw−/− mice can be used as a model for BCM. We also showed that AAV-mediated expression of either human OPN1LW or OPN1MW in Opn1mw−/− cones rescued M-cone function and promoted regeneration of cone outer segments in the dorsal retina.19,20 In the present study, we characterized the numbers of viable cones in dorsal and ventral retinas in young ...
Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B: Biological Sciences
We found that the cone opsins of guppies are highly polymorphic, both within and between populations, resulting in at least two different green-sensitive opsins and two highly differentiated LWS opsin isoforms. While RH1, RH2-1 and SWS1 appear to be single copy genes, LWS is found in at least two copies per individual. The 15 different LWS opsin haplotypes identified from nine strains can encode seven different proteins, which can clearly be grouped into three distinct forms. Only variant 1 was found in populations from both Trinidad and Venezuela, while variants 2 and 3 were restricted to Trinidad and Venezuela, respectively (figures 3 and 4). The prevalence of non-synonymous substitutions known to change maximum absorbance of visual pigments, along with the high ratio of non-synonymous to synonymous substitutions, suggests strong diversifying selection of these proteins, especially in the functionally important TM domain 4 (figure 5).. Our finding of five different cone opsins is compatible ...
Visual system - Wikipedia
The retina consists of a large number of photoreceptor cells which contain particular protein molecules called opsins. In humans, two types of opsins are involved in conscious vision: rod opsins and cone opsins. (A third type, melanopsin in some of the retinal ganglion cells (RGC), part of the body clock mechanism, is probably not involved in conscious vision, as these RGC do not project to the lateral geniculate nucleus but to the pretectal olivary nucleus.) An opsin absorbs a photon (a particle of light) and transmits a signal to the cell through a signal transduction pathway, resulting in hyper-polarization of the photoreceptor. Rods and cones differ in function. Rods are found primarily in the periphery of the retina and are used to see at low levels of light. Cones are found primarily in the center (or fovea) of the retina. There are three types of cones that differ in the wavelengths of light they absorb; they are usually called short or blue, middle or green, and long or red. ...

7 transmembrane receptor (rhodopsin family). This family contains, amongst other G-protein-coupled receptors (GCPRs), members of the opsin family, which have been considered to be typical members of the rhodopsin superfamily. They share several motifs, mainly the seven transmembrane helices, GCPRs of the rhodopsin superfamily. All opsins bind a chromophore, such as 11-cis-retinal. The function of most opsins other than the photoisomerases is split into two steps: light absorption and G-protein activation. Photoisomerases, on the other hand, are not coupled to G-proteins - they are thought to generate and supply the chromophore that is used by visual opsins. ...
L-/M-cone opponency in visual evoked potentials of human cortex | JOV | ARVO Journals
The responses to luminance modulation may be explained by an asymmetry in the ON- and OFF-subpathways. In the L/M cone opponent pathway, there are four subpathways: +L−M, +M−L, −L+M, −M+L. The ON-/OFF-asymmetry could explain response differences between +L−M and +M−L on the one hand and −L+M and −M+L on the other hand. However, an additional asymmetry between +L−M and +M−L and between −L+M and −M+L must be assumed; otherwise, their responses would cancel each other out. Which mechanisms are responsible for these signals is an important open question. A possible source of asymmetry may be attributed to the L/M cone ratio. There generally are more L than M cones, and thus there are probably also more postreceptoral neurons belonging to the +L−M than to +M−L subpathways. Similarly −L+M neurons probably outnumber −M+L neurons. If the answer lies in the relative numerosity of +L−M compared with +M−L cells then it can be expected that the signals as measured in the ...

Visual perception begins when a photon is captured by an opsin pigment in a rod or cone cell. This causes photoisomerization of the retinaldehyde chromophore from 11cRAL to atRAL, converting opsin to its signaling state. Shortly after, the active opsin decays, releasing free atRAL. Sensitivity is only restored to the resulting apo-opsin when it combines with another 11cRAL to form a new pigment. Our laboratory is interested in the biochemical processes that convert atRAL back to 11cRAL. The genes for several proteins of the visual cycle are affected in human inherited retinal and macular degenerations. We are working to understand what these proteins normally do for a living, and how loss of function causes blindness in people with disease-causing mutations. We are also interested in how the visual opsins maintain light sensitivity under daylight conditions where the photon fluxes and hence chromophore-consumption rates are millions-fold higher than at night. We have discovered several processes ...
