By using energy minimization and MD simulations, we investigated the possible effects of the p.W126L mutation on the structure of the human opsin moiety that was represented by either the dark-adapted like (high affinity for 11-cis-retinal) or the light-adapted like (high affinity for all-trans-retinal
) crystal structures.
