  • The technology has successfully revealed the depth-resolved rhodopsin distribution in the retina, and thus provides direct visualization of the photon propagation pathways. (arvojournals.org)
  • Rhodopsin VIS-OCT can be used to quantitatively image rhodopsin distribution and thus assess the distribution of functional rod photoreceptors in the retina. (arvojournals.org)
  • Rabbit antisera to these peptides recognize the rhodopsin molecule in whole retina from 8-week-old normal and affected rcdl (rod/cone-dysplasic) Irish setters (8- and 4-weeks-old). (biochemj.org)
  • molecule
  • Rhodopsin, the light-sensing molecule in the outer segments of rod photoreceptors, is responsible for converting light into neuronal signals in a process known as phototransduction. (arvojournals.org)
  • However, since the reaction of rcdl retinas cannot be restored to that of the normals, these results suggest that the rhodopsin molecule from the rcdl dogs may be structurally altered in other ways. (biochemj.org)

  • The depth resolution allows the visualization and segmentation of the location where the absorption change occurs and provides an accurate assessment of rhodopsin content. (arvojournals.org)
  • When the rhodopsin content was equalized by using a solid-phase radioimmunoassay, the reaction with anti-peptide antisera to the C-terminal octapeptide (residues 341-348) is severely decreased in the rcdl-dog retinas. (biochemj.org)
