152 Baehr, WolfgangCloning and molecular characterization of cGMP-gated ion channels from rod and cone photoreceptors of striped bass ( M. saxatilis ) retinaVertebrate photoreceptors respond to light with changes in membrane conductance that reflect the activity of cyclic-nucleotide gated channels (CNG channels). The functional features of these channels differ in rods and cones; to understand the basis of these differences we cloned CNG channels from t...Amino Acid Sequence; Computational Biology; Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction2006
