Column 1 identifies the rod. Columns 2–4 give the parameters of the model used to fit the low intensity responses in Ringer's, as illustrated in Figs. 11–13; the value of the amplification constant used is given in Table II, and in all cases the Hill coefficient was set to

*n*_{H}= 2. τ_{c}′ is the value of the larger time constant of the disc-associated reactions, and τ′_{nd}the shorter time constant (Eq. 5). Column 4 gives the value of α′_{max}= α_{max}/*cG*_{dark}, the maximal rate of guanylyl cyclase activity divided by the concentration of cGMP in the dark (see ii). Column 5 gives the observed shift at the point of 80% recovery (20% response amplitude) between saturating responses obtained in choline and in Ringer's. Column 6 gives the shift predicted on the assumption that cyclase activation alone is responsible, calculated with Eq. 16. Column 7 gives the residual shift; i.e., the observed minus the predicted shift.↵* Rods

*i*and*j*were recorded from in 0-Ca^{2+}choline, and for the reasons given in the notes to Table II, we were unable to measure Δ*T*_{0.8}and have instead substituted Δ*T*_{0.5}.
