Vitamin A is a vital component of a molecule called rhodopsin found in the cells of the retina, the inner surface of the eye that converts light to nerve impulses.
The retina is particularly susceptible to oxidative stress due to its high oxygen utilisation, the presence of photosensitisers such as rhodopsin and exposure to intense light conditions.
When the sequence was resolved, it turned out that it had seven hydrophobic segments, which suggests that it wound through the membrane seven times and, thus, resembles rhodopsin, which is also known to activate a G-protein.
Their topics include templating photoreactions in solutions, supramolecular photochirogenesis, the photochromism of multicomponent diarylethene crystals, controlling photoreactions through non-covalent interactions within zeolite nanocages, and protein-controlled ultrafast photoisomerization in rhodopsin and bacteriorhodopsin.
