BACKGROUND Phototropins are UV-A/blue light receptor proteins with two LOV (Light-Oxygen-Voltage) sensor domains at their N terminus and a kinase domain at the C-terminus in photoautotrophic organisms. This is the first research report of a canonical phototropin from marine algae Ostreococcus tauri. METHODS We synthesized core LOV1 (OtLOV1) domain-encoding portion of the phototropin gene of O. tauri, the domain was heterologously expressed, purified and assessed for its spectral properties… CONTINUE READING
