Characterization of a novel human opsin gene with wide tissue expression and identification of embedded and flanking genes on chromosome 1q43.

Abstract:

As part of an ongoing search to identify novel mammalian photopigments that may mediate nonvisual tasks such as circadian entrainment and acute suppression of pineal melatonin levels, a number of recently cloned nonvisual opsin sequences were used to search dbEST. panopsin (OPN3) was one of the clones identified using this approach. Expression analysis detects two transcripts of approximately 2.1 and 2.5 kb, in a wide range of tissues including brain, liver, and retina, which encode a predict...
