    Karen L Carleton
    Department of Biology, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742, USA
    BMC Biol 6:22. 2008
    ..These shifts result from modulated expression of seven cone opsin genes. However, the mechanisms for this modulated expression are unknown...

    Hubbard Center for Genome Studies and Department of Zoology, University of New Hampshire, London, UK
    Mol Biol Evol 23:1538-47. 2006
    ..The distinct peak absorbances of these preserved opsin genes provide a palette from which selection creates the diverse visual sensitivities found among the cichlid species of the lacustrine adaptive radiations...
