The steady state level of mRNA for the light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b binding protein (LHCP) varies considerably during a day-night light cycle in expanding leaves of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum, cv Wisconsin 38). The maximum (day) level is at least one hundred-fold higher than the minimum (night) level. The oscillation in the LHCP mRNA level continues for several days even under constant illumination. However, no such circadian rhythm can be detected in constant darkness. Plants that have… CONTINUE READING
