The flagellate Euglena gracilis contains a photoactivated adenylyl cyclase (PAC), consisting of the flavoproteins PACα and PACβ. Here we report functional expression of PACs in Xenopus laevis oocytes, HEK293 cells and in Drosophila melanogaster, where neuronal expression yields light-induced changes in behavior. The activity of PACs is strongly and(More)
The flagellate Euglena gracilis contains as photoreceptor complex a heterotetrameric light-sensitive adenylyl cyclase (AC), consisting of the flavoproteins PACalpha and PACbeta. Previously, we demonstrated the functional expression of PACalpha and PACbeta in oocytes from Xenopus laevis and of PACalpha in different animal cell types. Both yielded a blue(More)
