Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Mechanics of How the Absorption of Light Interacts or is Impacted by Proteins
Part One:
The purpose of this study is to look at the mechanics of how the absorption of light interacts or is impacted by proteins. To do this a study of
rhodopsin’s
and
opsins
(cone cells and rod cells) and the mechanics behind their use will be considered in the following study material.
Part Two: [CLIENT DOING THIS]
Part Three:
Primary Article Guiding Question 1: The central research question
In this first article the authors suggested that the “artistic ability” of elephants (who have been known to paint) must have a well developed sense of color vision. The authors wanted to explore the role of the visual pigments in elephants as an example of arrhythmic...
The end:
.....ation
works in a tight protein binding pocket and the impact of coupling retinal
isomerization
to the helix motion. Finally the article covers how
phdodpsin
can be used as a model for
ligand
-activated G protein coupled receptors by showing the parallels between
rhodopsin
and
ligand
activated
GPCRs
. Its purpose is to provide a comprehensive outline on the mechanics of
rhodopsin
and its link with
GPCRs
.
