Sammanfattning : Many vertebrate animals are known to have multiple sites for photoreception that are not involved in vision. Extraretinal photoreception is indicated to play a crucial role in early development, physiology and behavior, as well as in later biological processes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Virtually all diurnal birds have tetrachomatic vision based on four different colour receptors. As a result, birds are potentially able to perceive their environment in twice as many colours as humans and four times as many colours compared to most other mammals, which are dichromatic. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The duplication of genes followed by selection is perhaps the most prominent way in which molecular biological systems gain multiplicity, diversity and functional complexity in evolution. Whole genome duplications (WGDs) therefore have the potential of generating an extraordinary amount of evolutionary innovation. LÄS MER
4. Evolution of Vertebrate Vision by Means of Whole Genome Duplications : Zebrafish as a Model for Gene Specialisation
Sammanfattning : The signalling cascade of rods and cones use different but related protein components. Rods and cones, emerged in the common ancestor of vertebrates around 500 million years ago around when two whole genome duplications took place, named 1R and 2R. LÄS MER
5. Photoreceptor degeneration, second order neuron remodeling and glia reactivity in an in vivo and in vitro model of retinal neurodegeneration
Sammanfattning : Photoreceptors have the ability to last during the entire lifespan of an individual. Being the first line of neurons in the visual transduction pathway, their health and maintenance is eminent for proper retinal function. However, photoreceptors are susceptible to neurodegenerative retinal dystrophies. LÄS MER
