Organisms use multiple strategies to maximize visual capabilities in different light conditions. Many invertebrates show a daily cycle of shedding the photoreceptor's rhabdomeric membranes at dawn and rebuilding these during the following night. We show here that the Aedes aegypti mosquito possesses two distinct light-driven cellular signaling processes for modulating rhodopsin content during this cycle.
Fmr1 (show FMR1 ELISA Kits) protein associates with ninaE mRNA and represses its translation.
Data show that site-directed mutagenesis of conserved residues has only modest effects on Rhodopsin 1 absorption.
Data indicate that mutations in Golgi SNARE (show GOSR2 ELISA Kits) protein gos28 (show GOSR1 ELISA Kits) lead to defective rhodopsin (Rh1) trafficking.

These data show that the Drosophila metallophosphoesterase-dephosphorylated alpha-Man-II (show MAN2A1 ELISA Kits) is required for the removal of the Rh1 oligosaccharide chain.
Wild-type opsin mainly formed oligomers. Only a minor population formed aggregates. The G188R opsin mutant mainly formed aggregates. When wild-type opsin and G188R opsin were coexpressed in cells, properly folded wild-type opsin did not aggregate with G188R opsin and was trafficked normally to the cell membrane. The autosomal dominant phenotype due to misfolded opsin mutants is not due to WT-mutant physical interaction.
Data suggest that retinitis pigmentosa-associated mutation G51A behaves differently in human rhodopsin compared to bovine rhodopsin; human rhodopsin is more thermally stable than ancestral ancestrally reconstructed mammalian rhodopsin.
The metformin-rescued P23H rhodopsin was still intrinsically unstable and led to increased structural instability of the rod outer segments. These data suggest that improving the traffic of misfolding rhodopsin mutants is unlikely to be a practical therapy, but also highlights the potential of altering translation through AMPK (show PRKAA1 ELISA Kits) to improve protein function in other protein misfolding diseases
Study reports an X-ray free electron laser crystal structure of the rhodopsin-arrestin (show SAG ELISA Kits) complex, in which the phosphorylated C terminus of rhodopsin forms an extended intermolecular beta sheet with the N-terminal beta strands of arrestin (show SAG ELISA Kits). Phosphorylation was detected at rhodopsin C-terminal tail residues T336 and S338.
results suggest that nonsense-mediated mRNA decay modulates the severity of retinitis pigmentosa in patients with nonsense mutations in the rhodopsin gene
both the charged G90D(2.57) and the hydrophobic T94I(2.61) mutation alter the dark state by weakening the interaction between the Schiff base (SB) and its counterion E113(3.28) We propose that this interference with the tight regulation of the dim light photoreceptor rhodopsin increases background noise in the visual system and causes the loss of night vision characteristic for CSNB (show CSN2 ELISA Kits) patients.

Our study shows that RHO mutations are a major cause of adRP (show PLIN2 ELISA Kits) in this cohort and are responsible for 28% of adRP (show PLIN2 ELISA Kits) families.
These findings revealed a total water flux between the bulk and the protein inside in the Meta II state, and suggested that these pathways provide water molecules to the crucial sites of the activated rhodopsin.
Data suggest that a hetero-multimer complex forms between light-activated rhodopsin and light-activated heterotrimeric transducin (show GNAT1 ELISA Kits) (T-alpha-1, Gnb1 (show GNB1 ELISA Kits), Gngt1 (show GNGT1 ELISA Kits)); the stoichiometry is 1:1 rhodopsin:transducin. The complex appears to form on native rod outer segment membranes upon light activation.
Study presents a comprehensive analysis of the kinetics and thermodynamics of the recombination reaction between opsin and 11-cis (show CISH ELISA Kits)-retinal (11CR) to form the mature visual pigment, Rho; and found that the lipid bilayer environment is important for ligand binding in Rho.
In response to light-induced isomerization of the retinal chromophore rhodopsin, hydrogen-bonding interactions involving these C=O groups are released, thus facilitating repacking of H5 and H7 onto the transmembrane core of the receptor.
rhodopsin can tolerate a second Lys (show LYZ ELISA Kits) in the retinal binding pocket and suggest that an evolutionary intermediate with two Lys (show LYZ ELISA Kits) could allow migration of the Schiff base Lys (show LYZ ELISA Kits) to a position other than the observed, highly conserved location in the seventh TM helix
multiconfigurational quantum chemistry is used to compare the isomerization mechanisms of the sensory rhodopsin from the cyanobacterium Anabaena PCC 7120 (ASR) and of the bovine rhodopsin (Rh).

Eliminating Cngb1 and reducing RDS leads to additive defects in RDS expression levels and rod electroretinogram (ERG) function, (e.g., Cngb1-/-/rds+/- versus rds+/- or Cngb1-/-) but not to additive defects in rod ultrastructure.
These findings reveal that an early and significant pathophysiologic effect of endoplasmic reticulum stress in photoreceptors is the highly efficient elimination of misfolded rhodopsin protein.
Data show that G90D1 ribozyme efficiently and specifically cleaved the mutant transcript of the G90D mutation in the rhodopsin gene while G90D2 ribozyme cleaved both WT and mutant transcript.
Data show that misfolded opsin mutants form aggregates in the endoplasmic reticulum.
Data show that the step-like responses of serine-only rhodopsin reflect slow and stochastic arrestin (show SAG ELISA Kits) binding.
The form-deprived experimental myopia groups showed an increased expression of rhodopsin and its mRNA compared to the controls.
overexpression of full-length rhodopsin or its cytoplasmic tail domain, but not of rhodopsin lacking the cytoplasmic tail, exacerbated rod degeneration in kif3a (show KIF3A ELISA Kits) mutants, implying an important role of the cytoplasmic tail in rod degeneration.
expression as well as the protein localization of rhodopsin in the zebrafish from larval to adult stage were demonstrated; results demonstrated the involvement of rhodopsin in the zebrafish pineal gland physiology particularly in light capture during the zebrafish lifespan

The newly identified ciliary targeting VxPx motif present in rhodopsin binds the small GTPase (show RACGAP1 ELISA Kits) Arf4 (show ARF4 ELISA Kits) and regulates its association with the trans-Golgi network.
Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited progressive disease which is a major cause of blindness in western communities. It can be inherited as an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive disorder. In the autosomal dominant form,which comprises about 25% of total cases, approximately 30% of families have mutations in the gene encoding the rod photoreceptor-specific protein rhodopsin. This is the transmembrane protein which, when photoexcited, initiates the visual transduction cascade. Defects in this gene are also one of the causes of congenital stationary night blindness.
