Phytochromes function as red/far-red photoreceptors in plants and are essential for light-regulated growth and development. Photomorphogenesis, the developmental program in light, is the default program in seed plants. In dark-grown seedlings, photomorphogenic growth is suppressed by the action of the CONSTITUTIVELY PHOTOMORPHOGENIC1 (COP1)/SUPPRESSOR OF(More)
Several anthraquinones containing the [2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]ethyl]amino, the [2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]amino, and the 2-(dimethylamino)ethoxy groups were prepared. Preparation of a lucanthone analogue, a 7-chloroquinoline derivative, and derivatives of naphthoquinones containing the [2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]ethyl]amino side chain and related(More)
In this review we focus on the role of SPA proteins in light signalling and discuss different aspects, including molecular mechanisms, specificity, and evolution. The ability of plants to perceive and respond to their environment is key to their survival under ever-changing conditions. The abiotic factor light is of particular importance for plants. Light(More)
Cu-based shape memory alloys are known for their technologically important pseudo-elastic and shapememory properties, which are intimately associated with the martensitic transformation. A combination of deformation theory and finite-strain elasticity theory has been employed to arrive at the expressions for higher order elastic constants of Cu-Al-Zn based(More)
