Coupling of human rhodopsin to a yeast signaling pathway

In this new assay, light dependent activation of the human rhodopsin protein initiates the yeast mating pathway and results in the signaling of a fluorescent reporter. This innovative technique allowed the authors to characterize a panel of known rhodopsin mutations and to explore the molecular mechanisms that lead to their to pathogenicity.
