Multiple ancestral and a plethora of recent gene duplications during the evolution of the green sensitive opsin genes (RH2) in teleost fishes
Vertebrates have four visual cone opsin classes that, together with a light-sensitive chromophore, provide sensitivity from the ultraviolet to the red wavelengths of light. The rhodopsin-like 2 (RH2) opsin is sensitive to the centre blue-green part of the spectrum, which is the most prevalent light underwater. While various vertebrate groups such as mammals and sharks have lost the RH2 gene, in teleost fishes this opsin has continued to proliferate.
