BILD 2 Name __ KEY _____ Winter Quarter, 2011 2 1. (10 points) (a) Name the four major tissue types. Epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous tissues (b) What kinds of photoreceptors do we have and what kinds of light do they detect? Rods which detect white light (light/dark discriminators) & Cones which detect color (red, green, blue light) 2. (10 points) What is rhodopsin? What does it do and how and where does it do it? Rhodopsin is a molecule composed of a protein part (opsin) and a light-absorbing pigment (retinal) which can exist in a cis or trans form. The molecule is located in the membrane (of discs) in the outer segment of photoreceptor cells. When a photon (light) strikes the retinal and converts the cis to the trans form, the action releases a G-protein subunit which initiates a signaling cascade in the cell, relaying the information about light on to the next cell. 3.
