26387074 The study reports on a different regeneration mechanism among red and green cone opsins with retinal analogs using UV-Vis/fluorescence spectroscopic analyses, molecular modeling and site-directed mutagenesis.
26368273 The Ser180Ala polymorphisms on the L-opsin gene were found to influence the subject's color discrimination and their sensitivity to spatio-chromatic patterns.
26114493 Our study confirms the findings that unique variants in OPN1LW are responsible for both syndromic and nonsyndromic X-linked high myopia mapped to MYP1.
25820227 We identified 76 individuals with an L-M array. Four had exonic mutations, but the other 72 had no mutation in the exons or flanking introns. Sixty-nine of the 72 individuals had a -71A>C substitution in the M gene promoter.
24058409 Using several human ROP enhancer/promoter-luciferase reporter constructs, the study found that thyroid hormone receptor beta 2 increased luciferase activities through the 5'-UTR and intron 3-4 region.
23139274 The photoreceptor phenotype associated with OPN1LW and OPN1MW mutations is highly variable. These findings have implications for the potential restoration of visual function in subjects with opsin mutations.
22998501 Identification of one single red-green OPN1LW/MW hybrid gene harboring a point mutation that associates with blue cone monochromatism.
22732407 These results suggest that complete skipping of exon 3 at splicing, due to the unique haplotype of the exon, causes loss of expression of L-opsin in 119 Japanise men with protanopia color vision defect.
22183383 Missense mutation in both OPN1LW and OPN1MW cause X-linked cone dystrophy.
21451022 Opsin expression in terminally differentiated mammalian cones remains subject to control by thyroid hormone through its receptor TRbeta2.
