Opsin expression in human epidermal skin.
Providence, United States. In Photochem Photobiol, 2015
Here we show that four opsins—OPN1-SW, OPN2, OPN3 and OPN5—are expressed in the two major human epidermal cell types, melanocytes and keratinocytes, and the mRNA expression profile of these opsins does not change in response to physiological UVR doses.
The human Müller cell line MIO-M1 expresses opsins.
Leipzig, Germany. In Mol Vis, 2010
The cells contain mRNA for the following opsins: blue opsin (OPN1SW), rhodopsin (OPN2), panopsin (OPN3), melanopsin (OPN4), neuropsin (OPN5), and peropsin (RRH), as well as for the transducins (guanine nucleotide binding protein [GNAZ], alpha transducing activity polypeptide 1 [GNAT1], alpha transducing activity polypeptide 2 [GNAT2]).
Pathogenesis of allergic airway inflammation.
Omaha, United States. In Curr Allergy Asthma Rep, 2010
Several genes, including ADAM33, DPP10, PHF11, GPRA, TIM-1, PDE4D, OPN3, and ORMDL3, have been implicated in the pathogenesis and susceptibility to atopy and asthma.
Origin of the vertebrate visual cycle.
Japan. In Photochem Photobiol, 2007
We identified four genes encoding putative visual cycle proteins, homologs of retinal G protein-coupled receptor (Ci-opsin3), cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein (Ci-CRALBP), beta-carotene 15,15'monooxygenase (Ci-BCO) and RPE-specific 65 kDa protein (Ci-RPE65) in the ascidian, Ciona intestinalis.
