You and a friend are hiking in the woods and come across a community that grows and consumes two different types of �magic mushrooms� from the species Psilocybe semilanceata and Amanita muscaria.

Psilocybe semilanceata and Amanita muscaria are rich in light-sensitive retinal. The community leaders inform you that they consume significant quantities of Psilocybe semilanceata when they want to experience the “pure white light of the universe” and Amanita muscaria when they want to be calmed by the “darkness.”

1. Predict the mechanism by which each compound causes the mushroom consuimer to see either white light or experience total darkness.

2. Which enzymes might you target to reverse the effects of each compound?Justify your prediction.
