Plants cannot change location to escape stressful environments. Therefore, plants evolved to respond and acclimate to diverse stimuli, including the seemingly innocuous touch stimulus [1-4]. Although some species, such as Venus flytrap, have fast touch responses, most plants display more gradual touch-induced morphological alterations, called(More)
Proteorhodopsin (PR) is a light-driven proton pump that has been found in a variety of marine bacteria. Recently, many PR-like genes were found in non-marine environments. The goal of this study is to explore the function of rhodopsins that exist only as partial proteo-opsin genes using chimeras with marine green PR (GPR). We isolated nine partial genes of(More)
