Phototropin family photoreceptors, phot1 and phot2, in Arabidopsis thaliana control the blue light (BL)-mediated phototropic responses of the hypocotyl, chloroplast relocation movement and stomatal opening. Phototropic responses in dark-grown tissues have been well studied but those in de-etiolated green plants are not well understood. Here, we analyzed phototropic responses of inflorescence stems and petioles of wild-type and phototropin mutant plants of A. thaliana. Similar to the results… CONTINUE READING
