Light signaling has been demonstrated to be an important factor for plant growth and development; however, its role in the regulation of DNA replication and cell cycle has just started to be unraveled. In this work, we have demonstrated that the TOP2 promoter of Pisum sativum (pea) is activated by a broad spectrum of light including far-red light (FR), red light (RL) and blue light (BL). Deletion analyses of the TOP2 promoter in transformed plants, Arabidopsis thaliana and Nicotiana tobaccum… CONTINUE READING
