Spectral sensitivity of melanophores of a freshwater teleost, Zacco temmincki

, : Spectral sensitivity of melanophores of a freshwater teleost, Zacco temmincki. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. A, Comparative Physiology 90(1): 147-149

1. The melanophores of a freshwater teleost, Zacco temmincki, responded to changes in illumination: in darkness the melanophores induced a melanosome aggregation and when subjected to light they caused a melanosome dispersion. 2. Using monochromatic light, the spectral sensitivity of the melanophores was examined. 3. The melanophores showed a different sensitivity to light between 400 and 600 nm with a maximum at about 525 nm. 4. The action spectrum closely resembled a porphyropsin absorbance curve, suggesting a porphyropsin or similar photopigment is active in the melanophore light response of Zacco temmincki.

The .vphi.X174 sequences in T5 hybrid DNA were detected by RNA-DNA hybridization.
