SPECIFIC responses to blue light are found throughout the biological kingdom. These responses& mdash;which in higher plants include photo-tropism, inhibition of hypocotyl elongation, and stomatal opening1& mdash;are in many cases thought to be mediated by flavin-type photoreceptors2. But no such blue-light photoreceptor has yet been identified or isolated, although blue-light responses in plants were reported by Darwin over a century ago3, long before the discovery of the now relatively… CONTINUE READING
