A blue light (BL) receptor was discovered in stramenopile algae Vaucheria frigida (Xanthophyceae) and Fucus distichus (Phaeophyceae). Two homologs were identified in Vaucheria; each has one basic region/leucine zipper (bZIP) domain and one light-oxygen-voltage (LOV)-sensing domain. We named these chromoproteins AUREOCHROMEs (AUREO1 and AUREO2). AUREO1 binds flavin mononucleotide via its LOV domain and forms a 390-nm-absorbing form, indicative of formation of a cysteinyl adduct to the C(4a… CONTINUE READING
