The phytochrome photoreceptor family directs plant gene expression by switching between biologically inactive and active conformers in response to the sequential absorption of red and far-red photons,. Several intermediates that act late in the phytochrome signalling pathway have been identified, but fewer have been identified that act early in the pathway,. We have cloned a nuclear basic helix–loop–helix protein, PIF3, which can bind to non-photoactive carboxy-terminal fragments of… Expand
