Figure 6. . Rod response properties at stages 52 and 56, after incubation with 11-cis retinal. In each case, top panel indicates flash response-intensity family from an overnight-dark-adapted rod, and bottom panel shows the relation between peak amplitude and flash intensity of the same cell. Preincubation of isolated retina with 100 μM 11-cis-retinal in normal Ringer for 40 min in darkness. (A) Flash intensities were 0.09, 0.20, 0.72, 2.93, 11.2, 43.4, and 172.0 photons.μm−2, respectively. Light flash was delivered at time 0. The solid curve is Eq. 1 with σF equal 1.5 photons.μm−2. (B) Flash intensities were 0.09, 0.44, 1.68, 6.86, 26.1, 101.5, and 385.7 photons.μm−2, respectively. The solid curve is Eq. 1 with σF equal 2.4 photons.μm−2. Additional flash intensities not shown in the top panels are included in the bottom panels.
