The role of ultraviolet light in the image and non-image forming visual systems of mice

Abstract:

Long thought to be absent from mammals, UV sensitivity has now been established in many species, including mice, where it has been found to provide visual sensitivity and drive circadian responses. Compared to closely related species, the murine UVS cone photopigment is both in relatively high abundance and is associated with a unique expression gradient across the retina, raising questions concerning the function of UV sensitivity that may be relevant to other mammals. Here we investigate...
