A plant blue light response was documented as early as 1881 by Darwin when he discovered what is now known as the blue light–induced phototropic response (Darwin, 1881). However, blue light receptors mediating phototropism and other photoresponses in plants have remained elusive until recently. On the basis of molecular genetic studies in Arabidopsis, it is clear now that there are two types of blue light receptors in plants: cryptochromes and phototropins. Cryptochromes are found not only in… CONTINUE READING
