Spectral sensitivities and photopigments in adaptation of fly visual receptors

, : Spectral sensitivities and photopigments in adaptation of fly visual receptors. Die Naturwissenschaften 63(11): 513-518

Chromatic adaptation and receptor-deficient mutants have been used to systematically eliminate specific receptor function to provide the first complete spectral sensitivity and photopigment characteristic data of all three receptor types (R1-6, R7 and R8) in Drosophila compound eyes. Different fly genera have different adaptation responses which allow characterization of photopigment spectra. Drosophila mutants with anomalous excitation also reveal mechanisms coupling photopigment activation with receptor excitation.
