    Brockerhoff S, Dowling J, Hurley J. Zebrafish retinal mutants. Vision Res. 1998;38:1335-9 pubmed
    ..Our results indicate that mutants with defects in various processes such as photoreceptor synaptic transmission, photoreceptor adaptation and cell-type specific survival and/or function can be identified using this approach. ..

    Brockerhoff S, Rieke F, Matthews H, Taylor M, Kennedy B, Ankoudinova I, et al. Light stimulates a transducin-independent increase of cytoplasmic Ca2+ and suppression of current in cones from the zebrafish mutant nof. J Neurosci. 2003;23:470-80 pubmed
    ..Thus, in addition to stimulating transducin, light also independently induces release of Ca2+ into the photoreceptor cytoplasm. ..
