A general scheme of visual induction and its regulation in mammalian retinal rods and the main signal proteins involved in the functioning of the visual signaling apparatus were considered. The role of calcium ions and calcium-binding proteins in the switching off of the visual signal and the transition of the photoreceptor cell from a photoexcited to a "dark" state was discussed in detail.
