Visual opsins bind 11-cis retinal at an orthosteric site to form rhodopsins but increasing evidence suggests that at least some are capable of binding an additional retinoid(s) at a separate, allosteric site(s). Microspectrophotometric measurements on isolated, dark-adapted, salamander photoreceptors indicated...
