Cone Visual Pigments of the Australian Marsupials, the Stripe-Faced (Sminthopsis macroura) and Fat-Tailed (Sminthopsis crassicaudata) Dunnarts: Sequence and Inferred Spectral Properties

Strachan, Jessica; Chang, Ling Yu; Wakefield, Matthew; Graves, Jennifer; Deeb, Samir


Studies of color vision in marsupial mammals have been very limited. Two photoreceptor genes have been characterized from the tammar wallaby, but a third cone pigment was suggested by microspectrophotometric measurements on cone photoreceptors in two other species, including the fat-tailed dunnart, Sminthopsis crassicaudata. To determine the sequence and infer absorption maxima of the cone photoreceptor pigments of S. crassicaudata and the related stripe-faced dunnart (Sminthopsis macroura), we...[Show more]
