The protein which inspired the image for April in our 2020 calendar is rhodopsin, the primary photoreceptor molecule in vision. Rhodopsin is a light-sensitive G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) containing a light-absorbing chromophore, retinal. On exposure to light, rhodopsin undergoes conformational changes, initiating a signal transduction cascade. Light is then converted into an electrical signal that is transmitted to the brain, interpreted as vision.
