  • cis-retinal.  // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p427 

    A definition of the medical term "cis-retinal" is presented. Cis-retinal refers to the form of retinal combined with a glycoprotein opsin, like rhodopsin in rods, during darkness. Light striking the retina changes it to trans-retinal and begins the generation of a nerve impulse.
