retinene (redirected from 11-cis retinal)
Also found in: Dictionary
an ocular pigment derived from vitamin A and formed by the bleaching action of light on rhodopsin. It occurs in two forms: retinene1 is retinal (def. 2), and retinene2 is dehydroretinal.
Retinol oxidized to a terminal aldehyde; retinal; a carotene released (as all-trans-retinal) in the bleaching of rhodopsin by light and the dissociation of opsin in the vision cycle.
Etymology: L, rete
either of the two carotenoid pigments found in the rods of the retina that are precursors of vitamin A and are activated by light. See also retinal, retinol

In addition, Air-CCAPR1-Like[DELTA]105 incubated with 11-cis retinal appears to possess a bistable nature, as demonstrated by the sinusoidal shape of spectrum 1, complementary to spectrum 2 (Fig.
The mutants were tested with the chromophore that gave the best result for each of the two GCPRs: 11-cis retinal for Air-CCAPR1-Like[DELTA]105 and all-trans retinal for Air-AAR1-Like[DELTA]58.
Other studies using the same expression system detected no responses in non-injected oocytes after incubation with 11-cis retinal
