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 . Primary Article References Yokoyama, S. (2005).
