Continuous irradiation with blue light (400–500 nm) induces flower formation in plantlets of Arabidopsis thaliana (C24) while red light (600–700 nm) is ineffective. This observation started a search for genes that are activated by blue light and initiate the morphogenic programme leading to flower formation. Several genes were identified via their cDNAs. From these clone AthH2, with an open reading frame for a hydrophobic 30.5 kDa polypeptide, was selected for further characterization of the… CONTINUE READING
