Afterpotentials in dronefly retinula cells
The wavelength dependence of the afterpotentials following a bright illumination was studied in single photoreceptor cells of the droneflyEristalis. Cells with only a spectral sensitivity peak in the blue were selected. As previously demonstrated, these cells contain a rhodopsin absorbing maximally at about 450–460 nm, which upon photoconversion transforms into a metarhodopsin absorbing maximally at about 550 nm (Tsukahara and Horridge, 1977). With the visual pigment initially all in the...[Show more]
