    Science 332:1307-12. 2011
    ..The predicted high noise for pigments with λ(max) in the infrared presumably explains why they apparently do not exist in nature...

    Departments of Neuroscience and Ophthalmology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:10339-44. 2005
    ..Finally, we detected no melanopsin in the RPE and no changes in rod and cone sensitivities due to melanopsin ablation. Together, these results strongly suggest that melanopsin is the photopigment in the ipRGCs...

    Chih Ying Su
    Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
    Science 311:1617-21. 2006
    ..Gustducin-alpha resembles transducin-alpha functionally and likely mediates the hyperpolarizing response. The parietopsin-Go signaling pair provides clues about how rod and cone phototransduction might have evolved...

    Yingbin Fu
    Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Room 907 Preclinical Teaching Building, 725 North Wolfe Street, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205, USA
    Nat Neurosci 11:565-71. 2008
    ..Our measurements provide a rationale for why mammalian red, green and blue cones have comparable sensitivities, unlike their amphibian counterparts...
