The cyclic nucleotide-gated channels of vertebrate photoreceptors and olfactory epithelium.

Cation channels that are directly gated by guanosine 3', 5'-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) control the flow of ions across the surface membrane of vertebrate rod and cone photoreceptor cells. A similar channel, gated by adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP), exists in vertebrate olfactory sensory neurons. The channel polypeptide of rod photoreceptors has been identified and the amino acid sequence of the channel polypeptide in rod and olfactory cells has been determined by cloning cDNA. Although the cyclic nucleotide-gated channels functionally belong to the class of ligand-gated channels, they share some structural features with voltage-gated channels.[1]
