316 pages
April 2008
Rhodopsins and Phototransduction, No. 224 (0470515708) cover image
Brings together key new results of interdisciplinary collaborations among various research fields on rhodopsin including the photoreceptive mechanism of rhodopsins, the molecular mechanism of the visual transduction process, visual processes in the retina and other transduction processes in the retina and brain.

The structures of the rhodopsin molecule are studied in the fields of protein chemistry, molecular biology, organic chemistry and structural biology; the ultra fast reactions of the retinal protein are studied in physics, biophysics, physical chemistry, organic chemistry and photobiology; the phototransduction in retinal proteins and visual cells are studied in biophysics, biochemistry, biophysical chemistry and photobiology; and the localization in the tissues is studied in anatomy and histochemistry. The diversity of visual systems in various animals is studied in zoology and comparative biochemistry.

"This book provides and excellent summary of current work on photopigments and transduction. It should be particularly useful to those vision scientists and other whose primary interests lie elsewhere." (Opthal & Physiolog. Optics , Vol.21, No.5, 2001)
