Term Information [More information on all-trans retinal binding]

Accession
GO:0005503
Name
all-trans retinal binding
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
all-trans retinaldehyde binding, trans retinal binding, visual yellow binding, xanthopsin, vitamin A binding
Definition
Interacting selectively and non-covalently with all-trans retinal, a compound that plays an important role in the visual process in most vertebrates. All-trans retinal (trans r., visual yellow) results from the bleaching of rhodopsin by light, in which the 11-cis form is converted to the all-trans form. Retinal is one of the forms of vitamin A.
