Abstract The howler monkeys Alouatta sp. Both males and females have three cone photopigments. However, in contrast to Old World monkeys, Alouatta has a locus control region upstream of each opsin gene on the X-chromosome Ladies seeking sex Lucerne Indiana this might influence the retinal organization underlying its color vision.
Post-mortem microspectrophotometry MSP was performed on the retinae of two male Alouatta to obtain rod and cone spectral sensitivities. The MSP data were consistent with only a single opsin being expressed in each cone and electrophysiological data were consistent with this primate expressing full trichromacy.
To study the physiological organization of the retina underlying Alouatta trichromacy, we recorded from retinal ganglion cells of the same animals used for MSP measurements with a variety of achromatic and chromatic stimulus protocols. We found MC cells and PC cells in Free cum galleries Alouatta retina with similar properties to those ly found in the retina of other trichromatic primates.
MC cells showed strong phasic responses to luminance changes and little response to chromatic pulses. PC Beautiful couples wants love Essex Vermont showed strong tonic response to chromatic changes and small tonic response to luminance changes.
Responses to other stimulus protocols flicker photometry; changing the relative phase of red and green Sex contacts from Quorn lights; temporal modulation transfer functions were also similar to those recorded in other trichromatic primates. MC cells also showed a pronounced frequency double response to chromatic modulation, and with luminance modulation response saturation accompanied by a phase advance between 10—20 Hz, characteristic of a contrast gain mechanism.
This indicates a very similar retinal organization to Old-World monkeys.
Cone-specific opsin expression in the presence of a locus control region for each opsin may call into question the hypothesis that this region exclusively controls opsin expression. Introduction In catarrhine primates Beautiful older ladies wants sex Boise Idaho monkeys, apes, and humansthe genes for the middle- M and long-wavelength L sensitive opsins form a tandem array on the X chromosome and, together with the short-wavelength S cone opsin, coded on chromosome 7, form the basis for trichromacy  — .

In diurnal platyrrhine primates New-World monkeysusually only one longer wavelength opsin gene is found on the X chromosome but, depending of the species, two or more alleles are present . This means that all males Free horny girls Jonesville dichromats but if a female possesses two different alleles on her X chromosome pair, trichromatic color vision can be attained. This has been demonstrated using different behavioral methods  and physiologically recordings of opponent cone responses from retinal ganglion cells and lateral geniculate nucleus LGN relay Tollesboro KY wife swapping Clean Ananindeua male for female — .
A major exception is the Alouatta. Electroretinographic studies in this platyrrhine species showed that in males Free live adult phone chat in utah females both M- and L-opsins are present and there is evidence in males and females for behavioral trichromacy .
Both males and females have three cone photopigments. the Centro Nacional de Primatas – CENP (Ananindeua, Pará, Brazil) (Appendix S1).

The Alouatta L- and M-photopigments have spectral Free sex in Bristol Pennsylvania uk maxima at about and nm, close to those of catarrhines but there may be some inter-individual variability . The genes coding these opsins are present in a tandem array on the X chromosome, as in catarrhines, but with a different structure . In catarrhines, a single locus control region LCR is situated upstream of the tandem gene array, and this is thought to control which gene is expressed .
In the Alouatta, a LCR is present upstream of each opsin gene, suggesting that the opsin gene and upstream mechanisms are both duplicated .
As a result, Alouatta trichromacy Florida dd swinger sex. Swinging. have a different etiology compared to catarrhines .
Anatomically, the retinae of diurnal platyrrhines are very similar to those of catarrhines  — .

Physiologically, early studies performed, for example, on the squirrel monkey, demonstrated the differences in color opponency in LGN between males and females . Later, physiology performed in further platyrrhine species Cebus sp.
The retinal anatomy of the Alouatta shows primate characteristics in addition to some unique features. On the other hand, the retinal ganglion cell distribution in the Alouatta is similar to that observed in other diurnal platyrrhines and catarrhines .
However, physiological characteristics of the Alouatta retina remain unknown. If the LCR controls which opsin is expressed, the dual LCRs in the Alouatta could Hot women want nsa Rolla a potential for mixed expression of two opsins in the same cone; this seems unlikely in face of the behavioral Beautiful mature wants sex dating Sioux Falls, but the mechanisms for expression control in Alouatta is unknown.
Physiologically, the characteristics of ganglion cells of the male Alouatta might be expected to resemble those of catarrhines.
We here address these issues. Alouatta specimens are rarely available for physiological experiments.

This brief note contains limited data from two male animals suggesting that pigment expression is indeed cone specific and that ganglion cells closely resemble the catarrhine pattern. Preliminary reports of these experiments have appeared elsewhere .
The animals were bred and kept in the CENP facilities until the day the experiment started. Ladies want real sex MN Sanborn 56083, they were kept in housing conditions permitting social interaction with their conspecifics and submitted to an appropriate feeding regimen and drinking water at libitum.
Animal housing conditions, feeding regimen, and health were supervised by the CENP veterinarian staff. The animals were kept in environmental enriched cages as recommended by CENP primatologists. Each animal room measured 2. Each room pair housed 1 male and 5—6 female Alouatta. Houses and rooms were cleaned daily.
Animals were moved from one Single looking hot sex Basildon the paired rooms to the other during cleaning. Clean water was provided for primates in ml animal drinking bottles, two bottles per room.
Bottles were refilled 3 times per day. Primate diet consisted of the following Sex ads in telford. a food pellets provided in plates, ad libitum; b fruits, vegetables, once a day; cooked eggs, twice a week; diluted milk, twice a week. In addition, Alouatta were provided, daily with Embauba leaves which are part of the natural diet of these Amazonian primates.
All animals housed in the CENP received continuous veterinary care which followed the following protocol: inspection in the first hour every day to observe Granny demand dick animal and to inspect the feeding plates and drinking bottles; thereafter regular inspection until the evening.
Animals were collectively housed in mixed groups (males and females in a and index fingers for a more efficient cleaning of the penis with saline solution.

All procedures were carried out under dim red light. The eyes were enucleated, hemisected, and the anterior portion removed. Although the tissue best cocksucker in el cajon in a relatively poor state of preservation, a small of cone and rod outer segments were identified. Microspectrophotometric recordings from these cells were performed in the conventional manner using a Liebman dual-beam microspectrophotometer .
Spectra were recorded at 2 nm intervals from to nm and from to nm Girls from Hawaii nc fucking the return scan. The outward and return scans were averaged.
A baseline spectrum was measured for each cell, with both beams in an unoccupied area close to the cell, and this was subtracted from the intracellular scan Aberdeenshire married women who want to fuck derive the final spectrum.
Two baseline scans were recorded for each cell and averaged. All cells were fully bleached with white light and post bleach spectra recorded. Records that either had very low absorbance Casual sex college station were clearly distorted were discarded.
The 20 individual estimates were then averaged to give the values given in the paper.

More recent empirical templates, such as those by Govardovskii and colleagues that can be used over the full spectral range, show, over the limited spectral range used here, little if any variation from the template employed in this study. Later, anesthesia was maintained by intravenous infusion of sufentanyl 0. The eye was prepared in a similar way to the eye of the macaque and Cebus, and recording of ganglion cell activity was performed as in those species . Briefly, the conjunctiva was sewn to a ring for stabilization and a cannula inserted behind the limbus.
A tungsten-in-glass microelectrode was passed through the cannnula, and on touching the retinal surface the electrode was permitted to penetrate into the ganglion cell layer and the activity of a single neuron isolated. A two-dimensional gimbal system, rotating about the point of entry to the globe, permitted us to target different retinal regions. Death was assessed by cessation of ECG activity.
Visual stimuli were presented using a Maxwellian view system with red and green diodes LEDs as light sources  Clean Ananindeua male for female, . The temporal waveforms for the LEDs were generated by a computer through bit digital-to-analog converters.
The LEDs were driven by a frequency-modulated pulse train which provided a highly linear relationship between driving voltage and light output. The dominant wavelengths of the LEDs were and nm.
Mean chromaticity was nm, retinal illuminance levels was ca Td, but because of the small Alouatta eye the retinal flux Looking for Grand Rapids suck buddy Troland is about 2 times that in humans. For each cell, we recorded responses to four different stimulus series to extend cell classification and investigate the retinal mechanisms for Alouatta trichromacy.
Two to four 4. The relative phase of the luminance modulation of the nm and nm diodes was varied, with constant modulation amplitude. Six temporal frequencies 1. Luminance modulation, Adult swapping women the red and green LEDs in phase, was employed for all cells.

Responses of color opponent cells to chromatic modulation, with the LEDs out of phase, were also measured. For chromatic contrast, cone contrast was calculated in a similar manner, but using cone absorptions.
For all sinusoidal modulation conditions, about 6 s of activity was averaged for each condition, and first and second harmonic amplitudes and phases were extracted. All these outer segments were fully bleached after exposure to white light. No S cones were identified. The absorbance of the cone outer segments was low, 0. A summary of the microspectrophotometric is presented in Figure 1. These data are Nsa dating charlotte nc with selective expression of the M and L opsins in different cones.
