Determining the Role of Phosphorylation of Mouse Melanopsin in Non-Image Forming Vision


Abstract

Summary:

This paper investigates the role of melanopsin C-terminus phosphorylation on non-image forming behaviors, finding that it influences the kinetics of some non-image forming behaviors and physiology, but does not completely explain deactivation of melanopsin.
