Rhodopsin phosphorylation: from terminating single photon responses to photoreceptor dark adaptation.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Rhodopsin phosphorylation has provided one of the first examples of the ubiquitous regulatory pattern of specific kinases downregulating the activity of G-protein-coupled receptors. However, only recently have studies in living animals allowed us to consider the role of rhodopsin phosphorylation in a broader spectrum of visual functions, ranging from the ability of rods to generate reproducible electrical responses to their ability to adapt to darkness after substantial light exposures.
