The dark synthesis of biliproteins in the blue-green alga Tolypothrix tenuis is controlled by brief light treatments. Green light potentiates synthesis of phycoerythrin and red light potentiates synthesis of phycocyanin. Red reverses the effect of green and vice versa. Action spectra for the red and green effects were obtained for the wavelength region 320 nanometers to 710 nanometers, at 10-nanometer intervals. The principal action band in the red peaks at 660 nanometers, with a half-band…

Action Spectra for Phycobiliprotein Synthesis in a Chromatically Adapting Cyanophyte, Fremyella diplosiphon.
TLDR
The action spectra suggest that the photoreceptor or photoreceptors which regulate phycobiliprotein metabolism in F. diphosiphon may be either one or two metalloporphyrin complexes or double pigment systems consisting of a red or green light-absorbing Photoreceptor which can be activated directly or by energy transferred from a blue light- absorbing receptor.
ON SPECTRAL CONTROL OF PIGMENTATION IN ANACYSTIS NIDULANS (CYANOPHYCEAE) 1, 2
TLDR
It is suggested that the low chlorophyll response to far red light reflects an incompetence rather than an adaptation.
Action spectra for chromatic adaptation in the blue-green alga Fremyella diplosiphon
TLDR
These results contrast strongly with previous determinations in the same organism, with major activity indicated in the blue; they are consistent with the control of photomorphogenesis in the Cyanophyta by a master pigment, analogous to phytochrome.
Wavelength modulation of phycoerythrin synthesis in Synechocystis sp. 6701
The spectral dependence of phycoerythrin synthesis has been studied in a unicellular photautotrophic cyanobacterium, Synechocystis sp. 6701, in which phycoerythrin synthesis alone is under chromatic
A POSSIBLE CONTROL BY PHYTOCHROME and OTHER PHOTORECEPTORS OF PROTEIN ACCUMULATION IN THE GREEN ALGA Ulva rigida
TLDR
The role of phytochrome and a red/green photoreversible system in the control of protein synthesis is discussed and Stimulation of protein accumulation by red, blue or green light was largely (red light) or partially (blue or Green light) reversible by far‐red.
Cultivation in the Dark of the Blue‐green Alga Fremyella diplosiphon. A Photoreversible Effect of Green and Red Light on Growth Rate
TLDR
The blue-green alga Fremyella diplosiphon Drouet can be grown in the dark on a medium consisting of mineral salts, glucose, and casein hydrolysate and the effect of green is reversible by brief irradiation with red light, and multiple photoreversibility was demonstrated.
LIGHT-INDUCED CHANGES IN ALLOPHYCOCYANIN Purified
TLDR
Several lines of evidence indicate that aliophycocyanin is the previously unidentified "phycochrome" observed in extracts of blue-green algae, and Selective immunoprecipitation of the phycobiliproteins indicates that allophyCocyan in is the photoresponsive pigment.
Role of Light at Shorter Wavelength in Photobiological Phenomena in Blue-Green Algae
TLDR
First, Lazaroff and his colleagues reported that this alga has two morphologically different stages in its life cycle, and green light induces phycoerythrin but suppresses phycocyanin formation, and red light acts reversely.
Chromatic adaptation and photoreversal in blue-green algaCalothrix clavata West
TLDR
Both chromatic adaptation and photomorphogentic phenolmena in this alga show the involvement of some photoreversible (red:green) pigment.
Investigations on the phototactic orientation of Anabaena variabilis
TLDR
Phototaxis of the blue-green alga Anabaena variabilis was studied using both population method and observation of single trichomes by microscope, indicating that the photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll a, C-phycocyanin and allo-phyCOCyanin are involved in the absorption of the active light.

Photomophogenesis in the Blue‐green Alga Nostoc commune 584
TLDR
The blue-green alga Nostoc commune 584 displays a photocontrolled developmental cycle similar to that described for N. muscorum A which promotes motility in non-motile cultures, and the motility-promoting substances from both species are reciprocally active.
Photoreversible Pigment: Occurrence in a Blue-Green Alga
A new photoreversible pigment has been isolated from the blue-green alga Tolypothrix tenuis. This pigment bears certain resemblances to phytochrome, except that absorption maxima for the two forms
PHOTOINDUCTION AND PHOTOREVERSAL OF THE NOSTOCACEAN DEVELOPMENTAL CYCLE 1
TLDR
The developmental cycle of Nostoc muscorum, a nitrogen‐fixing blue‐green alga, is controlled by the spectral quality of illumination, and photo‐reversibility of the red‐light induction, by green light, decays very slowly, remaining at an appreciable level for over 24 hr after the primary stimulus.
Action Spectrum for Developmental Photo-Induction of the Blue-Green Alga Nostoc muscorum
TLDR
A blue protein, presumably allophycocyanin (absorption maximum, 650 m�) has been demonstrated in aqueous extracts of the cyanophycean cells.

The photosynthetic action spectrum of the bean plant leaf, Phaseolus vulgaris L. (variety Red Kidney), has been determined with a diffraction grating illuminated by a 6500-watt xenon arc. An infrared
Dark and photometabolism of sugars by a blue green alga: Tolypothrix tenuis.
TLDR
The carbohydrate metabolism of the autotrophically grown blue-green alga, Tolypothrix tenuis, was studied and it is proposed that the oxidative pentose phosphate cycle is the major pathway of carbohydrate breakdown in this alga.
