Structural dynamics of the signal termination process in rhodopsin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This review will provide and overview of what is known, and what is not known, about the visual signal termination process in mammalian vision. The focus will be on the role of structure and dynamic changes in the primary mammalian photo-transducer rhodopsin, and the protein that attenuates rhodopsin signaling, arrestin. Although this review focuses on mammalian photoreceptor proteins, analogous mechanisms may be used in the phototransduction pathways of other organisms.
