Retinal location and structure in squid rhodopsin

Nagai, Yoshinori; Kito, Masashi; Maddess, Ted


In order to understand retinal we calculated the dihedral angles around carbon axis IOC-12C, since two different carbon sequences 9C-10C-11C-12C and 10C-11C-12C-13C exist. We also calculated the distances between two specified carbon pairs. Those results are tabulated. Photon absorption changes the conformation of retinal conformation. This fact is confirmed from dihedral angle changes and distance changes of targeted of retinal carbon atoms. These matters are discussed in the present paper.
