Unresolved questions

  • Question 1: In the expression "blind as a bat", is the bat blindness a permanent or temporary phenomenon and how could you assert this is related to cGMP/ATP based phosphorylation of the Rhodopsin kinase?
  • Answer: Temporary! The bat can recover its vision if the GABA receptor is cleaved from cAMP/ATP dependent competitive ligands, thus allowing GPCR based signal transduction to occur normally. [REACTOME]
    • Notice also that the S1PR4 gene is a near-neighboor of the Cannabinoid receptors! (Hint hint)
