 Abstract: In photoreceptors of the living retina both activation and deactivation of transducin must occur in less than 1 s. In ROS preparations used for in vitro studies, however, deactivation takes minutes. This is due to the fact that activated transducin is released into the free aqueous space, whereby GTPase activity and consequent deactivation of the protein are slowed down, and due to the dilution of soluble ROS proteins involved in the quenching of rhodopsin activity. In this paper, using a convenient, non-invasive light scattering assay, we demonstrate that in an intact stack of disks, where active transducin stays membrane associated and is rapidly deactivated, the activity of rhodopsin can also be quenched in the time range of seconds when soluble ROS proteins are supplemented. Arrestin, the 48 kDa protein of the photoreceptor, is one of the proteins required for rapid recovery, however, it requires the synergistic action of other soluble proteins (besides rhodopsin kinase) in order to exert its effect: When arrestin is included in the reaction mixture without the ‘helper protein(s)’, it cannot speed recovery, and when a mixture of soluble proteins is added which lacks arrestin, there is also no effect. The nature and identity of this (these) helper protein(s) are still unclear.
