Residual cone vision without alpha-transducin.

Abstract:

Behavioral experiments in humans with a rare genetic mutation that compromises the function of alpha-transducin (Galpha the alpha-subunit of the G-protein in the primary cone phototransduction cascade) reveal a residual cone response only viable at high light levels and at low temporal frequencies. It has three characteristic properties. First, it limits temporal frequency sensitivity to the equivalent of a simple first order reaction with a time constant of approximately 140 ms. Second, it d...
