Term Detail
GO term:phototransduction, visible light
Synonym: visual cascade
Synonym: visual transduction
GO id:GO:0007603
Definition:The sequence of reactions within a cell required to convert absorbed photons from visible light into a molecular signal. A visible light stimulus is electromagnetic radiation that can be perceived visually by an organism; for organisms lacking a visual system, this can be defined as light with a wavelength within the range 380 to 780 nm.
Number of paths to term: 19
