Cph2 from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 is a hybrid photoreceptor that comprises an N-terminal module for red/far-red light reception and a C-terminal module switching between a blue- and a green-receptive state. This unusual photoreceptor exerts complex, light quality-dependent control of the motility of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 cells by inhibiting phototaxis towards blue light. Cph2 perceives blue light by its third GAF domain that bears all characteristics of a… CONTINUE READING
