Kefalov Lab - Research Opportunities

Photoreceptor Function Experiments

Role of cholesterol in photoreceptor function: we will employ pharmacological tools to reduce or increase the level of cholesterol in rod and cone photoreceptors and will then evaluate how this affects their light responses.

Mechanism of rhodopsin dephosphorylation and its role in photoreceptor function: we will employ pharmacological tools to inhibit the function of the putative rhodopsin phosphatase in rods and will then evaluate how this affects their light responses.
